The Midwest Shrine Association hosts two major functions each year. The winter session, held each February, is a business meeting for executive officers and key committee heads. All MSA Shriners are invited to attend the annual summer conference, which includes a variety of social events, all-Shriner parades, and Unit competitions. Attendance for the summer conference averages between 2,000 and 2,500 Nobles and their Ladies.
Hosting duties for the winter and summer sessions rotate each year. Naja Temple last hosted the events in 2005, and last year in 2018.
