June 19-22, 2018 | Cragun's Resort on Gull Lake

Join us for the MACATFO 2018 Summer Conference, held June 19-22 at Cragun’s Resort. We are striving to provide a “roll up your sleeves” conference this year where the hope is to provide you with information to assist you in your day-to-day responsibilities. It will provide learning opportunities regardless of the length of time you have been in your position – “seasoned” members are able to share their knowledge and new members are able to share their fresh ideas!

As you can see from the agenda, we have scheduled some excel training. Please bring your device (laptop, notebook or tablet) if it has Excel installed as there will only be a limited number of laptops available for use during those sessions.

With respect to lodging accommodations, please complete your Cragun’s online reservation. Spouses/guests/family are certainly welcome at the conference.
