Join us at the beautiful Amway Grand Plaza in Grand Rapids for the 2019 MPCA Annual Conference, August 4-6!


It’s a new city and a new conference.

  • The Grand Rapids Public Museum will be the site of the Sunday evening welcome event. Explore the museum while enjoying the delicious food stations throughout the main floor and second level of the museum. Take in a ride on the 1929 Spillman Carousel, explore the streets of old Grand Rapids, or experience TOYS like never before and reminiscence while playing giant versions of your favorite childhood games! 

    A family event, and it’s only a five-minute walk from the hotel.
  • Opening keynote address featuring Dr. Rick Goodman, who will inspire, entertain and give you tools on transformational leadership in changing times that you can immediately use in your health center. Dr. Goodman will also conduct a breakout session for a deeper dive into leadership topics.
  • You’ve requested more interaction with speakers, so a 90-minute session will feature four speakers, each providing an overview of their program. You will then have the opportunity to meet in small groups with the speaker to learn more about the topic.
  • A wide range of breakout sessions—30 in total—related to current clinical, alternative payment methodologies, enabling services, and board and governance. For your convenience, all sessions are easily accessible within the hotel.
  • Leave Grand Rapids motivated and ready to tackle the challenges and opportunities at your health center with a closing session featuring the Transition Man Johnny Campbell.

We’ll see you in Grand Rapids, August 4-6.
