Corporate Advisory Council (CAC)

The Corporate Advisory Council was formed to connect MSAA with corporate partners. These partnerships will help corporations reach their philanthropic and cause-related marketing goals, and will also promote education and awareness of MS. The vision for this group is to grow both MSAA’s and the Council members’ organizations’ impact by creating strategic partnerships that impact the lives of those living with MS. Members share their professional expertise and their connections to local and national resources, colleagues, or peers to help MSAA attain our partnership goals.
