Please join the Minnesota Alliance on Crime on September 5 and 6, 2019 for two days of strategizing, learning, sharing, and networking. This year's theme, Dream Keepers: Caring for Ourselves While Caring for Others, reflects MAC's ongoing work to increase the capacity of our members to integrate vicarious trauma-responsive practices.

  

Capacity Building Training: Thursday, September 5, 8:00 to 4:30 p.m., and Friday, September 6, 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
At the Capacity Building Training we will focus on YOU: How you and your coworkers can take care of yourselves to ensure a long, healthy career working with victims. This will include training sessions on mindfulness, healthy organizational identity, debriefing, and discovering your strengths as a person and a professional. Come away from the training energized and inspired!

MAC Annual Membership Meeting: Friday, September 6, 8:30 am to noon
The Membership Meeting will provide members and allies the opportunity to learn more about the strategic work MAC staff and board are currently engaged in and provide direct feedback that will shape MAC's initiatives moving forward. Members will also ratify changes to MAC's bylaws and vote on the presented slate of candidates for the Board of Directors.

Spotlight Award Lunch: Friday, September 6, 2019, noon to 1:00 pm.
During a special recognition lunch we will award the Spotlight Award to a MAC member who is truly making a difference for crime victims with their innovative work.  

  

Silent Auction
MAC will hold a benefit silent auction on Thursday, featuring fantastic gifts, travel packages, and more! If you have an item or service you'd like to donate to MAC, please email Amee Krogfus by August 15th.

Optional Trauma Stewardship Book Club Lunch: Thursday, September 5, 2019, 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.
Have you and/or your coworkers been reading Laura van Dernoot Lipsky’s book Trauma Stewardship? Join MAC staff for a lunch and discussion of this incredible work and how we can best apply its lessons to improve our response to the vicarious trauma we often experience working with victims of crime. We will offer box lunches for purchase in advance. Registration coming soon!
