The ShopTalk online community allows you to ask questions, seek advice and gain insights from your peers on best practices and lessons learned. It's a free and exclusive resource for MSA members only, helping you to connect, learn, and do business together.


ShopTalk is the general discussion forum for all MSA members to ask questions and interact with each other; it is not a place to advertise or do direct buying and selling of a product or service. Please note that buyers may ask for product suggestions at any time, and that vendor members can reply to these requests if they have a product that fits, however, unsolicited product pitches from vendors are not allowed.

The Buyer Vendor Forum is meant to facilitate conversations between buyers and vendors and is a great place for vendors to ask each other for advice about business or initiate topics that affect only vendors. A popular weekly event on the BVF is “Product Pitch Friday” where vendors can pitch products according to a weekly theme. Please note that on ShopTalk, unsolicited product pitches from vendors are not allowed.
