24th Annual MnATSA Conference

The 24th annual MnATSA conference will be held April 21-23, 2021.

Registration Open Now!​

MnATSA has held a successful annual conferences every year since 1997.  This year is no different – even though we have had to turn to Whova, a virtual conference application.  Whova is user-friendly and facilitates easy access to sessions.  Whova also encourages interactions with other attendees, speakers, and exhibitors.  While your 2021 conference experience will be different, it is our hope that the conference will simulate the live, interactive, and fun conferences that you have come to expect from MnATSA.

The conference planning committee is using Whova to its fullest capacity by developing social communities, gamification, interactive breaks, opportunities to chat with speakers during their pre-recorded sessions and more!  The MnATSA 2021 Conference promises to be one of the best online conferences you have ever attended!  Don’t believe us?  Register, attend, and prove us wrong!

In the past, MnATSA has had amazing keynote speakers such as Kevin Creeden, Pamela Yates, Stephen Wormith, Elizabeth Letourneau, Ogi Ogas, Jackson Katz, Cordelia Anderson, Bill Marshall, Michael Miner, Lawrence Ellerby, Joan Tabachnick, Jill Levenson, Patty Wetterling, Liam Marshall, Janis Wolak and David Finkelhor.
