The MARRCH Board of Governors invites you to the 48th Annual MARRCH conference

The Education Committee has provided us with a great learning opportunity. With all the changes in our profession, we must make a commitment to consistently take advantage of learning experiences — it is our responsibility to ourselves and to our clients. Learn at the conference; network with your colleagues; be part of our celebrations; visit with MARRCH staff and the board of governors; consider taking an active part in the message and mission of MARRCH — being the voice of addiction treatment professionals. Without your voice, we will not be as easy to hear! We look forward to seeing you at the conference and saying hello!
