Due to the Governor’s Stay at Home Order as of 11:59 p.m. on Friday, 3/27 until Friday, 4/10, the Executive Board has decided it is necessary to cancel the Spring Conference at the Grand Casino Mille Lacs on April 24-26th.  This has been a difficult time for everyone.  For those who sent your registration, the checks and registration forms will be mailed back to you in the next two weeks.  Please make sure to cancel your hotel rooms at the Casino. For those that need to cancel their hotel reservations. Grand Casino Mille Lacs is closed until 4/13. The casino is planning to reopen on the 13th so you will be able to cancel reservations at that time.  


Because it is necessary to still conduct the business of the MN Society of Medical Assistants, the Pre-Conference Board Meeting is being set up via a Zoom meeting for Friday, 4/24 from 4:00-5:30 p.m.  Further information for voting and conducting the business for state members as a whole is still being worked out, but it is our plan to conduct the business meeting for all members on the 24th from 6:00-8:00 p.m. via Zoom.  Please check back on the website for further information as it becomes available. 


Please contact any of us on the Executive Board or your Chapter Presidents if questions.

Stay well and we hope to see all of you at the Fall Conference in October!
