Annual Fall Conference

Cancelled (with sadness) to be safe through COVID.

Due to increasingly community spread of COVID, we’ve decided to cancel our Mount Olivet Rolling Acres 2021 Annual Fall Conference which was has scheduled for Thursday, October 28. We considered virtual options but feel that part of the charm of our conference in the past was creating the chance for local disability-care leaders, nurses, case managers, social workers and DSPs to connect and restore together.  So, we’ll look forward to 2022 and hope you will as well.

Thank you to our planning committee, to our conference host Mount Olivet Lutheran Church in Victoria, and to our gracious speakers.

Sara Grafstrom, the Director of State and Federal Policy at ARRM

Charlotte Haberaecker, President and CEO of Lutheran Services in America

Amy Hewitt, Director of the University of Minnesota’s Institute on Community Integration

We still learned from each other’s ideas and energy and our work is needed more than ever.

Stay healthy, nourish resiliency and be kind to each other.

Mount Olivet Rolling Acres’ Annual Fall Conference 2021

Thursday, October 28, 2021

8:15am – 4:15pm – Lunch included. 6 CEUs.

Humans Services in a Global Pandemic:
Facing the Future without Fear

Limited seating capacity for COVID-safe social distancing.
Early Bird registration through August 31 = $75 

register Sept 1 – Sept 30 = $100 

after Oct 1 through day of conference = $125 

Each of our capacities to adapt have been severely tested through the pandemic.  Currently, how are human service providers adapting to these challenges and which actions have been most effective in response?  Has a “new normal” of practices, strategies and models emerged?  What is our shared call to action?  What can we do to adapt as we continue to learn from COVID impacts, and how do we remain resilient and embrace these changes?  What did we learn and how can we prosper and further enhance the lives of the vulnerable individual we support?

While the answers to these and other related questions are still evolving, they are the focus of our Annual Fall Conference scheduled for Thursday, October 28, 2021.  Please mark your calendar and plan on joining when we bring together national and local experts to reflect on what has been learned, and consider what the future might hold for the human services sector.

This is an in-person event and will be held at our partner Mount Olivet Lutheran Church in Victoria, MN.
