While MoSGA is providing these lists of members who wish to do research or conduct workshops, MoSGA does not endorse these researchers/speakers and assumes no responsibility for their work. Anyone hiring a researcher or speaker should check their qualifications and references and should have a clear idea of fees charged before any work begins.  A list of possible questions and things you should consider is available by clicking here.
