The Minnesota College Professionals Association (MCPA) is gearing up for the 2018 Annual Fall MCPA Conference. This year’s conference will take place in Mankato at the Courtyard by Marriott Mankato on Thursday, November 1 & Friday, November 2, 2018. Our theme is “Building Community by Creating Space for Hope & Healing”. Please look out for a future announcement for this year’s keynote speakers.
Registration has opened for the conference with varying discount rates for members versus non-members. If you are reading this and are not a member of MCPA, we strongly encourage becoming a member of MCPA prior to registering, as you’ll actually save more money than just paying to attend the conference! MCPA membership rates will be slightly increasing for the 2018 academic year beginning on August 15. Please note that early bird conference registration rates are available until Tuesday, October 2.
In addition to registration opening, the call for program proposals is now live. Proposals are due by Saturday, September 1st. For questions regarding proposals, please contact Kyle Flowers (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dominque Gant (email@example.com).
If you have any donations for our silent auction please contact Rachel Rudeen (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Grant Henry (email@example.com). The money raised from our silent auction provides scholarships for graduate students to attend the conference. Graduate scholarship applications for the 2018 conference are available on the main conference website and are due on Friday, September 14.
We look forward to seeing you at the 43rd Annual MCPA Fall Conference!
