Family Conference 2011
MTM-CNM Family Conference Newsletter




Greetings from your conference planning team! 

There are a couple steps that you can take right now to set the stage for your journey to the the third bi-annual MTM-CNM Family Conference, taking place from July 26-28, 2013 in Bloomington, MN! This newsletter provides information on how you can 1) book your rooms with the Best Western and 2) complete the conference registration for your family! We also encourage all of our families to be a part of the fundraising effort we need to make the conference happen!


While the getting is good...                                       Come lounge poolside at Best Western
Our conference venue is the Best Western directly across the street from the Mall of America! They have been more than accommodating regarding our needs and are absolutely thrilled to be working with us. We have 40 rooms booked for our conference at the discounted rate of $129.99/night, but they are going fast guys! You can make your reservations simply by calling (952) 854-8200 and mentioning the MTM-CNM Family Conference. 
For those of you who want to extend your stay, the discounted rate is available to our conference attendees for the conference days as well as three days prior and three days after the conference dates. 
Again, spaces are filling up quickly and July is a peak season, so be sure and book your rooms now while they are still available! 

(If something comes up, you can cancel your hotel reservation without penalty up to 72 hours prior to your reserved date.)

If you haven't already, check out the MTM-CNM Conference store on Zazzle. You can pick up the coolest shirts, magnets, bags, and mugs that celebrate our MTM and CNM Warriors and all those who love someone with MTM or CNM! All proceeds will benefit the MTM-CNM Family Conference! 

Friends, let's support the conference in style! 
Jeans for Genes    

Marie, Stesha, Jona 2011
Jeans for Rare Genes Day is this Thursday, February 28! Please consider wearing jeans in honor of MTM-CNM and making a small $1 or $5 (or more!) donation to support the MTM-CNM Family Conference through our First Giving page. You can also join the "I Wear Jeans for MTM/CNM Rare Genes Day" Facebook group and post pics of yourself wearing jeans for MTM-CNM and rare genetic conditions awareness!

Fundraising is absolutely essential to making the conference happen and we still have a way to go to cover our costs for this year's event, so every little bit counts! We encourage all of our families to think of other creative ways that we can raise those much-needed funds. With Spring approaching, it's the perfect time to raise money through a bake sale, Easter egg hunt, or yard sale! Go Team MTM-CNM! We can do this!


The family conference is a community effort, which supports individuals affected by MTM or CNM and their families and loved ones! We hope many of you will want to be a part of this wonderful event!

Warmest regards,
