Placement staff members from all firms are encouraged to attend. Non-attendance may be allowed only for emergency situations (Minnesota Rules 5220.1500, subpart 3a). Otherwise, nonparticipation in the provider updated may result in professional conduct and accountability discipline and may affect annual registration renewal with the Department of Labor and Industry.

Video presentations of the conference will be available on this website after the event for rehabilitation providers who missed the event or want a refresher.
