We hope everyone is enjoying the winter wonderland with their favorite winter pass time; maybe a little snowmobiling, skiing, ice fishing or just sitting next to a warm fire with a good book. As we enter 2017, MACPO Committees are diligently preparing for the upcoming year. A big thank you is well deserved for all those who help make MACPO a leader in the field of Corrections in Minnesota.
In October of this past year, MACPO held the much anticipated 15th Annual Clerical Conference. Rick Olson spoke about stress, how to remain calm in a stressful situation, and how to add a little fun to the office. Mr. Olson was well received by all who attended. Don’t forget to look for the 16th annual MACPO Clerical Conference in October 2017.
We are extremely excited for our upcoming spring conference, as we will be celebrating 60 years of training excellence. The Training and Education Committee is working hard to ensure the training will once again be educational, beneficial, and exciting. We also have some great prizes and events planned for this milestone. A big thank you to Williams Diamond Center of Mankato, MN, who partnered with MACPO by donating a 14K white gold chain, which will be our grand prize drawing at the conference. Don’t miss out on your chance to attend some great training, participate in fun events, and a chance to win some fabulous prizes. We hope to see you there!
Finally, don’t forget to take some time to nominate those who are deserving of the annual awards offered by MACPO.
