The safety of MNCPA members, staff and visitors is our number one priority. As we plan and host in-person events, the MNCPA is following Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) guidelines at the MNCPA Education Center in Bloomington.

Here’s what you can expect when you attend an event at the MNCPA Education Center in Bloomington:
  • Elevators equipped with UV light air sterilization technology and dual HEPA filtration fan.
  • HVAC system upgrades that maximize fresh air intake.
  • Easy access to handwashing and hand sanitizer stations.
  • Frequent cleaning in the dining/hospitality area.
  • A full refund if you must cancel due to illness.

Health and safety measures at off-site venues

Protocols vary for events held at venues outside the MNCPA Education Center. Regardless of where you attend, you’ll receive a full refund if you need to cancel due to illness. If you’d like to know more about what to expect when attending an MNCPA event at an off-site venue, please seek out the information on the venue’s website or call the facility directly.
