Education and Events

MSSA strives to deliver high quality, cutting edge, professional education to health and human service professionals featuring top caliber, nationally recognized speakers at it's annual training conference and expo held each spring in Minneapolis. Regional fall conferences are held around the outstate area to offer local agencies the opportunity to gather and network. Regions also hold their membership meetings in the fall and elect their regional boards and delegates for the delegate assembly held in late fall.
