MAMFT wants to make trainings and CEUs more accessible to Greater MN Marriage Family Therapists.   We will be rotating the locations throughout the state based on needs and willingness of presenters and venues.  Trainings may be half day or full day, at the presenter’s discretion.   We are looking to build these partnerships with minimal expenses.  Presenters do NOT need to be members of MAMFT. Click here for a list of topic suggestions.

Travel expenses and partial presentation fee’s will be reimbursed by MAMFT in the following manner:

  • 80% of non-member registration fees will be paid to the trainer (20% to MAMFT for administrative costs)
  • Lodging (up to $125 for one night) and mileage at $.535/mile
  • The trainer sets the rate for the non-member registration fee
  • The training(s) are free for MAMFT members to attend

If you have a topic you’d like to present on and you live in or are willing to travel to outstate MN, please fill out the application found here.

MAMFT is looking for venues to host trainings in the following cities:
– Moorhead     – Alexandria     – Brainerd    – Duluth
– Rochestor     – Mankato     – St. Cloud
Venue criteria is really simple!
– A willingness to donate the use of the space to MAMFT as a tax deduction
– Ability to seat 30+ attendees
