A Letter from the MFSRC Chair…

Welcome to our MFSRC Website! I want to invite you to review the information for our 2021 MFSRC/MCAA Virtual Training Conference!  My name is Amy Overacker, and I am your 2020-2021 MFSRC Chair as well as the 2021 Virtual Conference Committee Chair, and I am excited to invite you all to attend our conference for a unique and diverse conference experience.  We are living in an exciting time full of both challenges and positive changes. With all we have learned over the last year and a half living through a global COVID-19 pandemic and social unrest, some of which in our own backyard, the time has never been more appropriate for us to focus on offering trainings that intentionally emphasize diversity, equity, and inclusion.  Our ultimate goal should be to evaluate how we can change from being an obstacle to a resource for the people we serve. 

This year, our theme is “Reset, Recover, Recharge, and Refocus.”  The COVID-19 pandemic has affected us all in a wide range of ways and this is our chance to take a breath and plan how we move forward.  We must reset the ways we previously did business and start from a blank slate.  We must give ourselves time to recover from any and all difficulties that the last two years have brought to our personal and professional lives.  When the healing occurs as we recover, we can begin refilling our toolbox of techniques to promote a higher level of success across our personal and professional lives.  Once we have our batteries recharged, we can begin refocusing how we distribute our energy to maximize a positive effect in our efforts to support children and families across the state of Minnesota as well in our own homes. 

Please review our Program at a Glance, which is subject to slight changes.  The Conference Planning Committee has been hard at work and is excited to bring you several excellent Keynote and Plenary presentations, and as always, a lot of excellent and helpful breakout sessions, many of which are being presented by your coworkers from throughout the state. There is something for everyone!

Again, thank you for taking the time out of your busy days to join us for our 2021 Virtual Conference and becoming a member during in this exciting chapter of our organization MFSRC.  Please feel free to reach out to any of our representatives or board members with any questions.

- Amy Overacker, MFSRC Board Chair
