The reception is sponsored by the Mayo Clinic Alumni Association (MCAA) for alumni and pre-alumni. The MCAA provides many services to our internal and external alumni. One service includes subsidizing the cost of alumni receptions at major academic meetings. Paying membership dues to the MCAA and the O’Leary Society, along with donations to either group are greatly appreciated to enable sustainment of services. This can be done online (https://alumniassociation.mayo.edu/login/) or during the reception.
