On behalf of the Minnesota Hospital Association (MHA) trustee council, we are thrilled to be back in-person for the first Summer Trustee Conference since 2019. We’re so glad to be back at Arrowood Resort and Conference Center in beautiful Alexandria, Minnesota.

Since 1917, MHA has worked with hospitals and health care systems as they provide high-quality care to patients and meet the needs of their communities. MHA’s best-in-class education and training opportunities are designed to equip health care leaders as they strive for excellence within their role. Trustees are champions for the facilities they serve and MHA’s comprehensive trainings for this leadership cohort prepare them to meet the challenges before them. With the leadership of the MHA Trustee Council, this year’s Summer Trustee Conference programming has been customized to include a variety of session topics requested by attendees at our last few conferences. By attending this event, trustees will gain deeper knowledge on topics that are impacting their organizations and earn credits towards their trustee and advanced trustee certification. Register early for a discounted price! Don’t miss this opportunity to advance your knowledge. We look forward to seeing you there!


The conference is specifically designed for hospital and health system leaders including trustees, physician board members, and c-suite leaders.
