Registration Policies

Registrants (including scholarship recipients) who are unable to attend the conference may substitute someone to attend in their place; please submit the change via email to MCN’s registrar. Cancellations received by May 30 will receive a refund minus a $35 processing fee. No refunds are available after May 30.

Breakout Room Seating Policy

Conference registration guarantees access to a choice of breakout sessions at different times throughout the conference schedule. However, conference registration does not guarantee a seat in any of the individual breakout sessions. Breakout rooms are assigned in advance of the conference. The safety of conference attendees is always a primary concern, and may include closing a room if attendance exceeds the room capacity. We encourage early arrival to the breakout sessions to help ensure that a seat is available.

Accommodation Requests

Plenty of standard and vegetarian meals will be provided, as well as vegan and gluten-free (please, ask a server if you have questions on the day of the conference).

A new mother's room and a prayer space will be provided (please check the conference program on-site for details about locations).

MCN strives to ensure that this conference is accessible to all individuals. If you have accommodation requests, such as sign language interpreters or other accessibility requirements, please submit your request during the online registration process or via email at events@minnesotanonprofits.org. Although we will attempt to meet all accessibility requests, requests submitted after May 30 may not be fulfilled.

Traveling to the Conference

The conference will take place at the McNamara Alumni Center at the University of Minnesota, 200 SE Oak St, Minneapolis, MN 55414. Please arrive early to ensure you have plenty of time to check-in before sessions begin.

Please take advantage of the Metro Transit light rail which provides easy access at the East Bank Station.

If you are driving, please know that the nearest parking ramps may fill up in the early morning. Large surface lots are also available north of Mariucci Arena (i.e., Lot 37) and are only 3 blocks walk.
