Mended Hearts members participate in various regional workshops in addition to activities sponsored through their local chapters to equip member to serve others.
The Board of Directors voted to offer multiple regional conferences in 2016, in lieu of one national conference. In board non-election even years (2016, 2018, etc.) a Super Regional Conference will be offered. In 2016, we will offer either 1 ½ or 2 1/2 day national conference in five regions. Regional Conferences are planned in the following areas:
- Mid-Atlantic (mid-June, Raleigh, North Carolina)
- Southwest (TBD)
- Southern (TBD)
- Midwest/Central (Chicago – mid-July)
- Western (TBD)
Our objective is to select a city that will not be more than a four- or five-hour drive from your home. The focus on these meetings will be on chapter and member development. Thus, it a national education and training conference brought to a location closer to you to learn 1) how to engage heart patients in MH activities 2) enhance visiting programs 3) raise MH awareness in the community through social media, and other strategies to help strengthen Mended Hearts.
