As many you have discovered, the MSA Lounge has gained a few new changes in the past six months from the addition of a coffee machine, regularly stocked food and snacks, recycling bins, etc.

These changes have were made in the spirit of increasing member engagement and promoting a happy workplace environment. While these changes have been met with much positivity, the MSA board still believes that we can do better!
