Spring & Fall Conferences
Two major conferences are planned each year by the association, assembling outstanding presenters, important work sessions and bringing together the membership of the association. These annual conferences provide the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with colleagues and keep abreast of current negotiation issues. State Board CEU's are available to participants.
Mini Conferences and Workshops
Smaller conferences and workshops are offered to the membership during the year in convenient locations throughout the state. These are designed to provide information and exchange ideas on current critical negotiation problems and administration issues facing the membership.
Your association collects information on areas of concern and interest to the members. From time to time the executive board compiles special reports to be issued to members. These reports will become permanent reference material for your library.
MNA provides members with e-mail alerts about contract settlements and other timely information of developments in the field of employee relations and negotiations. Member districts may also request information from MNA member districts with this service.
Negotiating Training Academy
The "Academy" is three days of intensive training for school negotiators, board members, superintendents and key bargaining representatives. This is an excellent opportunity for new personnel to learn from seasoned school negotiators and develop working relationships with peers. Two State Board CEU's are available to participants.
Member Hot Line/Arbitration Selection Information

The MNA executive board is available to assist local school districts and school management groups in obtaining speakers on topics dealing with negotiations and labor relations.
Supports Management Philosophy
MNA is an active member of the school management community. Its board members work closely with MASB on negotiation topics and many of our members also belong to MASPA, MASA, and other similar organizations. MNA's goal is to provide negotiators the support they need in obtaining a fair settlement for their district.
