The Summer Conference will be an impactful experience where EDAM will celebrate in style 50 years as an organization. When preparing for session proposals, it might be helpful to know that EDAM membership is comprised of approximately 50% greater Minnesota, and 50% metropolitan members and approximately 50% public sector and 50% private sector members. Sessions should be crafted in a way that is relevant to this membership and be approximately 45 minutes in length.

The Conference will be held in Nisswa at the Grand View Lodge from June 28th – 30th, 2017.

Thank you for your interest
