Mended Hearts hosts regular training and leadership events to equip members to serve others. Mended Hearts members participate in an Annual Education and Training Conference and various regional workshops in addition to activities sponsored through their local chapters.
Annual Education and Training Conference
Join us in Orlando!
The Conference Committee has begun planning another great conference filled with educational speakers and will focus primarily on chapter and member development topics, with a few national medical professionals.
We are happy to announce the location of the 2015 Education and Training Conference! Orlando’s Buena Vista Palace Hotel & Spa has been selected for the 2015 Conference, with a slightly different day pattern: Wednesday, June 24 through Saturday June 27, 2015. Mended Little Hearts’ Leadership Conference would be Friday – Saturday, June 26 & 27. The negotiated sleeping room rate is $134 plus applicable tax currently at 12.5%.
The Buena Vista Palace Hotel and Spa is a beautiful renovated property that is directly across the street from Downtown Disney. The hotel offers excellent meeting spaces and also offers free transportation daily to Disney ® Theme Parks (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studio, Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach), as well as nightly transportation to Downtown Disney Marketplace and Pleasure Island after 6pm. We are obtaining transportation to and from the airport (no additional cost to attendees). For those driving to Orlando, we were able to negotiate free self-parking!
Cluster Meetings/Regional Connections
At the regional level, gatherings of multiple chapters are held at scheduled intervals to train members and chapter officers as well as keep members up to date on the latest medical advances in heart disease. Cluster meetings are excellent opportunities to network for fellow Mended Hearts members, and share chapter best practices.
