As odd as it may sound to anyone with a dirty mind, the feminine form of "master" is "mistress". Therefore, the proper title would likely be "Mistress of Ceremonies".

Alternate answer:Many will object to the use of either 'master' or 'mistress' as being sexist terminology.

'Madame of Ceremonies' just doesn't cut it; and 'Madam of Ceremonies' conjures up visions of whips, chains, and dungeons.

The neutral term 'emcee' (derived from the initials M.C.) might be a better choice. Another possibility, although somewhat archaic, is 'interlocutor.' The Italian, 'madrina dell'evento' is still sexist, but could slip under the radar. 'Facilitator' and 'coordinator' sound a little bureaucratic, but would be appropriate in many circumstances. Perhaps, borrowing a term from TV news, 'anchor' would serve the purpose.

I suggest the simple word, 'host' (and not 'hostess').

Is it appropriate to give your master's degree suffix when signing your name or is this only for those who hold a Doctorate?

If you are signing your name in an official or professional capacity that is based upon the knowledge or expertise obtained through your master's degree, it is entirely appropriate, and sometimes necessary, to use your master's degree suffix. More often, it is printed with your name above or below where your signature will go, rather than being handwritten as part of your signature.
