The Michigan Occupational Special Populations Association (MOSPA) is pleased to welcome K-12 educators, Post-Secondary faculty and staff, community partners, administrators, non-profit partners, government agencies, and other professionals to attend the State MOSPA Conference.
We invite you to nominate an outstanding individual, program, or community partner who has gone above and beyond to support Special Populations (SPOP) and/or Occupational Programs/Career Technical Education. Five award categories are available for nominations and one winner from secondary and one winner from post-secondary will be selected for each category. See the Awards & Recognition tab for more details on how you can submit a nomination.
Each year the state conference committee puts together an event that meets both the expressed wishes and the diverse needs of our attendees. That means we are trying to make sure that each time slot offers speakers and topics of interest to both secondary and post-secondary conference-goers. If you find the conference a good fit for you each year, remember that it was designed with you in mind. Wait to see what we have in store for you!
Every year all registered conference participants are invited to the hospitality room for an opportunity to network, socialize, and enjoy refreshments. We will host a door prize drawing on Friday morning at the conference wrap-up. Please help out by bringing a gift to donate and drop them off at the conference check in table upon your arrival. It sure would be great if everyone received a prize!
The 45th Annual State MOSPA conference will be held May 6-8, 2020 at the Boyne Mountain Resort in Boyne Falls, MI.
Please note that May 6th will be comprised of conference registration, a MOSPA board meeting (3pm-4:30pm), and a networking opportunity during the hospitality event.
