Breakthrough is funded entirely by registration fees and is not supported by MHA dues.
Continuing Education Credit: The MHA Health Foundation will award 6 hours of continuing education credit to participants attending the conference. The MHA Health Foundation is authorized to award 6 hours of pre-approved ACHE Qualified Education credit (non-ACHE) for this program toward advancement or recertification in the American College of Healthcare Executives.

Cancellation Policy: Fifty percent of the registration fee will be credited to the card used for registration payment if notice is given by Feb. 16, 2018. No refund will be issued after this time. Registrants may send an alternate.
Winter Weather Policy: Very rarely has the MHA cancelled a conference due to inclement weather, but severe weather conditions can prevent registrants from attending a conference. If the MHA conference is not cancelled, it is our policy to offer a voucher worth 50 percent of the paid registration fee to those who submit a request in writing. The voucher can be used toward payment at a future MHA conference by the individual who could not attend.
Special Needs: If you have any special needs or concerns regarding program site access, dietary restrictions, or your participation in the program, call Erica Leyko at the MHA at (517) 323-3443. Inquiring in advance will enhance our ability to respond to your individual needs!
