growth mindset . . . closing the skills gap


Who Should Attend the MOSPA State Conference?

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 2019 MOSPA Conference.  

The conference will be held May 1-3, 2019 at the Boyne Mountain Resort in Boyne Falls, MI. Please note that May 1 will be comprised of conference registration, a MOSPA board meeting (3pm-4:30pm), and a networking opportunity during the hospitality event.

The State Conference is Designed for You

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!
