MASBO will provide continuing education credits from the Minnesota Board of School Administrators for the certification courses and full conference. CPE credits from the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) are offered for select educational sessions. For more information on CPE credits and continuing education credits, please visit the Education Credit Hours page.

Health & Safety

MASBO is committed to providing a safe experience at our 2021 Fall Conference and certification courses.  We are working closely with the Marriott on measures to help mitigate and prevent the spread of COVID-19 and are working diligently to ensure a safe conference experience.  Our association is continuing to monitor the recommendations of the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) as well as local, state, and federal guidelines.  An increasing number of school districts are implementing masking requirements, and Hennepin County and the City of Brooklyn Park (where the Marriott is located) also require masks at their public facilities.  We believe that our policies should reflect those of the conference attendees, and the city where the event will be held.  Therefore, a mask requirement will be in place for the conference in any public indoor setting, and physical distancing is encouraged.

Mask Requirement

Masks are required at the 2021 MASBO Fall Conference and certification courses for all participants (including registrants, guests and exhibitors).  All participants must wear a mask to gain access to the event, and leave their masks on in public, indoor spaces, only removing them when actively eating or drinking.  

Physical Distancing

MASBO asks that attendees refrain from physical contact – including hugs and handshakes – with other attendees.  Fist and elbow bumps are encouraged!

What You Can Do To Stay Safe

Ultimately, there is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 with any public gathering. While MASBO and the Marriott are taking your safety and that of our staff very seriously by employing COVID-19 safety protocols, best practices, and sanitation initiatives, we cannot guarantee that these measures will completely protect you from contracting COVID-19. The best way to have a safe event is for everyone to be diligent about their own personal safety both inside and outside of the conference.

We ask all attendees to do their part by taking personal responsibility and remaining vigilant about their own health, including:

  • Wearing face coverings in indoor places throughout the city (e.g., restaurants, bars, and other indoor attractions)
  • Maintaining physical distancing in indoor spaces
  • Using hand-sanitizing stations
  • Washing your hands frequently
  • Self-monitoring for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 (symptoms typically include fever, cough, and shortness of breath)

Please watch for additional updates to this policy, and contact Connie Nordquist, MASBO Executive Director at cnordquist@mnasbo.org with any questions.

Registration Agreement

All attendees at MASBO events agree to the terms our Registration Agreement. If you do not agree to these terms, do not register for the event.
