Write-Off contests cancelled

The state Write-Off contests held on the University of Minnesota campus have been cancelled to allow MHSPA to focus on other activities. Based on adviser feedback, the on-site contest may be combined with the state convention or return in a modified format next year.

NSPA Summer Workshop revised for 2009

Based on survey feedback and analysis of attendees from past workshops, the NSPA Summer Workshop will be restructured for 2009. Because many of the attendees commuted daily from the Twin Cities metro area, we have decided to shorten the number of days for the workshop but make each day longer — that means fewer trip to campus, less money spent on parking and meals, and fewer days off of work for students t summer jobs. It also means those people coming to campus and staying in the dorm will pay less since there are fewer nights.

We’ll pack the same amount of learning (or more) into just three intense days: July 16-18, 2009. Watch your mail for a brochure explaining the course offerings, price and other details.
