2017 Member Conference: Moving to Scottsdale

By Lee Aase, Director, Mayo Clinic Social Media Network

We're excited to announce that the next Mayo Clinic Social Media Network (MCSMN) Member Conference will be on our Mayo Clinic campus in Scottsdale, Arizona, Dec. 11-12, 2017.

With 40+ participants, our Residency in Scottsdale Dec. 8 set a campus record.

For the last six years we've held a variant of this two-day conference in Rochester, Minn. Strong attendance for our Social Media Residency in Scottsdale earlier this month (see the class photo at right!) spurred us to consider holding the 2017 conference there in early December instead of in Rochester in May.

As we explored the change, last weekend's frigid weather across the U.S. (including -29˚F temps in Minnesota) increased our confidence that December dates in Arizona would likely be appealing!

We'll announce conference details in February, but for now we hope you'll save the dates and plan to join us.

Meanwhile, registration is open now for Social Media Residency cohorts in Jacksonville, Fla. (Feb. 20) and Rochester (May 15). If you want to tack Residency on to the end of the conference in Scottsdale, we'll also have a session there on Dec. 13. Registration for that cohort will be available when we open conference registration.

Residency registration includes a one-year Premium Individual Membership in MCSMN as well as the Social for Healthcare Certificate from Mayo Clinic and Hootsuite. If you already have a premium membership, you save 25 percent on Residency.

We plan to hold the 2018 MCSMN Member Conference on our Mayo Clinic campus Jacksonville, Fla., and then we'll come back to Rochester in 2019.

Hi there! I’d love to plan on attending in December (for conference and residency), but will need to submit preliminary budget items before Feb 1. Would it be possible to get this information before then? Email is acs02@grh.org

Thanks!
