To select workshops that are best-suited to your learning needs and interests, we recommend referring to the Workshop Content Matrix (linked below or on page 13 of your brochure) and carefully reviewing workshop descriptions. The track list is organized by profession, hot topics and age group. We hope this helps you get the most out of your conference experience.
If you need a reasonable accommodation (e.g., wheelchair accessibility, interpreter, braille, or large print materials), such accommodations will be made available upon advanced request. Please contact the MACMH office on or before March 27th, and for TTY, contact Minnesota Relay Service at 1-800-627-3529.

The conference is designed to meet CEH (Continuing Education Hours) credits for many disciplines: psychology, social work, education, education administration, nursing, marriage and family therapy, and behavioral health and therapy. CEH certificates will be available to document participation.
Conference attendees can earn up to:
6 CEHs on Sunday
6 CEHs on Monday
5.5 CEHs on Tuesday
for a total of up to: 17.5 CEHs for the entire conference.
Actual CEH amounts will be dependent upon your specific licensure board and attendance.
Post-tests will be provided at on-site registration. Post-tests are only intended for social workers working toward their LICSW to help them meet clinical clock hour requirements.
Social workers are required to obtain CEHs with clinical content. The sessions marked with this designation qualify for the Board of Social Work’s clinical content requirement.
