New Location

Metropolitan State University

We are excited to announce that our 2018 venue will be Metropolitan State University in Saint Paul. The Board and Conference Committee have been carefully studying venue options over the past few years. The RiverCentre has been a comfortable “home” to our Conference for many years. However, our need to change dates and some long planned construction scheduled for the area surrounding the RiverCentre presented an opportunity to move to a new location. The Committee believes Metropolitan State University can offer an excellent experience, and value, with free parking for conference participants!

Join the Conference Committee

The Conference Committee roster is still growing and we would be glad to welcome interested colleagues to join our team. If you are interested in joining the committee or presenting at the conference, please contact the Conference Committee Co-Chairs, Jacob LaCroix at or Juliana Sellers at
