On September 19, 2014 the 25th Annual State Conference for the Minnesota Association for Guardians and Conservators (MAGiC) was held at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum in Chaska. 125 Guardians and Conservators from all over Minnesota attended the event. Matrix and 20 additional sponsors/vendors had tables at the conference.
Matrix reconnected with several past and current clients and met many new friends as well. President/Owner Karen Lawrence spent some time with BMO-Harris explaining the benefits of having a Care Manager for their clients (this was the type of work Matrix did for the first 19 years).
Several break-out sessions were held including: Guardian & Conservatorship 101 for new members, How to Be a Payee to the VA (they are looking for more good payees), How to Handle Real Estate Transactions, Certification Considerations and the Role of the Guardian in End of Life Decisions.
The MN Arboretum grounds were beautiful and decorated for Halloween. And the cupcakes were delicious too!
