| While the getting is good... |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.)

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!
