Pre-Conference Day 2019

Pre-Conference Day will be held on June 12, 2019, one-day prior to the MHA Annual Conference, at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill. This year our focus will be on showcasing affiliate programs as MHA affiliates are the most diverse, innovative and successful at creating change in communities across the country. So, in 2019, we want you to hear from one another as a means of further supporting the development and continuation of your great programs.

Pre-Conference Day workshops will be designed for affiliates of all sizes, from the local information and referral hubs to larger entities with a range of programming. Our intention is to provide workshops that will be useful to all members of your staff, including newcomers to the more seasoned professionals. We will be highlighting the work of affiliates throughout our Network, focusing on successful programs, and on building and sustaining an active, growing, and strong presence on the state and local level.

Pre-Conference Day registration is automatically included for MHA affiliates that register for the full MHA Annual Conference.
