The planning committee is hard at work arranging for speakers and keynotes for our 2018 conference.  This website/registration site will continually be updated as we build the 2018 program.  Here is our 2017 conference program 2017NMMHSCProgram.pdf

The breakout sessions have been arranged in three tracks that address Leadership, Strategies, and Practice.  You may follow a track throughout the conference to focus on the area most relevant to you, or you can mix and match sessions to create a personalized training experience.

All keynotes, breakout sessions, meals and activities are included in the conference registration, unless otherwise noted.
