Come meet with MCN staff, members of the Summit planning committee, and fellow attendees during this welcome social hour at Chase on the Lake. The social hour will be hosted on Wednesday, September 18 from 7 – 8 p.m. in the Fireside Lounge. Registration for the social hour is separate from the following day’s convening, and attendees will be provided one drink ticket and light appetizers. Register today!

We encourage you to pay the registration rate that is meaningful to and possible for you and/or your organization. While earned revenue from our events is a significant portion of our operating budget, supporting the policy and advocacy work we do on behalf of nonprofits, we aim to keep our fees accessible, often below market rate, and offer further reduced entry points for those who need them to participate in professional development. If your participation is dependent on a PWYC rate, please register with the promo code that corresponds with your accessible price point below by September 11.

PWYC Rates:

  • $49 (Code: PWYC49)
  • $69 (Code: PWYC69)
  • $99 (Code: PWYC99)

You will not be asked to complete an application to prove need. PWYC rates are the scholarship model for this year’s Summit. The rates are for individuals and do not apply to small- and large-group registrations. PWYC rates are available through September 11, 2024.

Send more people from your organization and get more out of the Summit. Register three people from the same organization at once and the fourth registration is free! To register online, one person will login to their MCN account and you will add colleagues to your group – your fourth colleague will be free! Visit our Events and Registration FAQ page (choose “How do I register multiple people?” from the FAQ options) for instructions on how to complete online group registrations.

Offer valid only with full-rate registrations. PWYC rates not eligible. Please email our help desk with any questions or issues during registration. (Small Team deadline: September 11, 2024)

Do you have more than four people from your organization to send to the Summit? Register a group of up to ten people from the same organization using the PDF Registration Form at the following rates:

  • MCN Member Organization: $950
  • Nonmember Organization: $1,300

Large-team rates are available through September 11, 2024

Registrants who are unable to attend the Summit may send a substitute to attend in their place; please submit the change via email to MCN’s registrar. Cancellations received by September 11 will receive a refund minus a $35 processing fee. No refunds are available after September 11. See our full Registration Policies.

Summit registration guarantees access to a choice of breakout sessions at different times throughout the day. However, 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 Summit 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.

MCN strives to ensure that the Summit 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 Although we will attempt to meet all accessibility requests, requests submitted after September 11 may not be fulfilled.

MCN has a block of rooms set aside for Summit attendees at Chase on the Lake Resort; $129 / night for a standard room and $259 / night for 2-bedroom condos. Interested guests should call 218-547-7777 and refer to group #168653 to reserve their rooms. You will be asked for a credit card and a $50 deposit on hotel rooms or a $200 deposit on condos. Any rooms from the block not reserved by September 1, 2024 will be released.
