AMHCA exhibitors and sponsors are an important part of every AMHCA Annual Conference. They not only provide fun “swag” for members, their partnership and financial support enables AMHCA to do more for its members.Below, an exhibitor at the 2011 Annual Conference.
All the sessions related in some way to the 2011 conference theme: “The Power of Partnerships: Effective Pathways to Mental Health.” Each session was coded as one of nine topic-area tracks. Below, one of the conference speakers.
Make plans now to attend AMHCA’s Annual Conference next year in Orlando, July 18–21, 2012, at the beautiful Buena Vista Palace.
