Annual Education Conference

Each year, MNASCA hosts an Annual Education Conference. While last year's virtual conference looked quite different from previous years, the event still achieved its mission to connect leaders in the ASC industry with key stakeholders and partners in the health care community.
The annual conference provides our members with continuing education so that they can stay current on key topics and issues affecting ASCs. From legislative overviews to briefings on staffing your center, we offer a wide range of topics to interest everyone in the ASC.

The MNASCA conferences bring together the right mix of people from the ASC industry and are very useful for networking and the latest on regulatory hot topics/changes.  The high quality of the speakers and seniority of other attendees are essential for gathering information and discussing issues we are faced with each day. Thank you for hosting such a wonderful and successful conference.
