Please join the Minnesota Alliance on Crime on September 21 and 22, 2017 for two days of strategizing, learning, sharing, and networking to go above and beyond our work in advancing rights and services for crime victims in Minnesota. This year’s theme, Above and Beyond: Excellence in Victim Services, reflects MAC’s efforts, based on the needs of our membership, to build capacity to reflect best practices and provide comprehensive services to victims.

MAC Annual Membership Meeting: Thursday, September 21, 8:30 am to noon

The Annual Meeting will provide members and allies the opportunity to learn more about the strategic work MAC staff and board are currently engaged in and to provide direct feedback that will shape MAC’s initiatives moving forward. Members will also be tasked with ratifying changes to MAC’s bylaws and the presented slate of candidates for the Board of Directors.

Capacity Building Training: Thursday, September 21 from 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm, and Friday, September 22 from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm

Over a day and a half, participants will hear directly from victims/survivors and experts in the victim services field who will provide training on victims’ rights in Minnesota, a panel discussion on advocacy and collaboration, vicarious trauma, and emerging issues in the crime victim services field. Full agenda coming soon.
