Are you a financial worker or case aide looking to expand your understanding of state programs, connect with peers across the state, or stand out at your agency? If so, consider registering for MFWCAA and attending our annual conference!

Each year, MFWCAA holds an annual three-day conference for financial workers and case aides across the state to attend workshops hosted by DHS staff. Attendees learn about how to navigate complex policies from state staff working in SNAP, MFIP, GA, GRH, CCAP and health care. In addition, there’s nightly entertainment, award announcements, delicious lunches and dinners, and giveaways for attendees. Many human services staff report the MFWCAA conference as the highlight of the year!

If you’re looking for a great networking and learning opportunity, join MFWCAA and come to our conference!

If you or anyone you know is interested in being a vendor at the conference this year, please contact Vice President Jessica Buckentin at jbuckentin@co.carver.mn.us.
