Reconnect and Recharge at MANA

MANA is Not Just Education and Business — There's So Much More!

Connect at #MANA16MANA is a great time to visit with friends and colleagues from far and wide. Enjoy special events together (check out our new special events page for details) including the FAM Screening of Why Not Home, the free Saturday night dance, or the Sunday afternoon tour of Atlanta's new birth center... or just get together for an informal meeting or cocktail and catch up (the listed "Affinity Group/Caucus" timeslot is Saturday evening, but anytime will do!) If you haven't yet registered, read on for Wednesday's T-Shirt Giveaway Day!

And be sure to follow the events page on Facebook to connect in advance.

Don't Delay, Register TODAY, and Get a Free T-shirt at MANA

As an added incentive to register now, we are giving away MANA t-shirts to all people who register today. We'll have a variety of sizes and styles to choose from — maybe even this year's design?! Read on for even MORE good news... 

Hotel Registration Deadline has been Extended!

Staying together at the hotel is a great way to get the most out of your time at MANA. Our fabulous speakers will be there, the Board of Directors from MANA and leadership from other groups will be too, and it's a great way to visit with (and make new!) friends and connections. To make that even easier, and in recognition of the "last-minute" nature of midwifery work, the Hilton Atlanta has kindly granted us a generous extension on our group deadline, until Friday, September 30! That sounds great, but don't delay any longer, as your preferred dates may not be available if you wait.

Showcase Your Business or Services to the Attendees at MANA16!

Birth-related or "Just" Plain Beautiful, MANA Attendees Appreciate Quality and Variety

Promote your business with a coupon or advertisement in the program book or attendee bag. Or participate in person — the exhibit hall is always lively, but we have only a handful of tables remaining. Choose the opportunity that's right for you, but choose soon — our deadline is this Friday, September 23. Full prospectus and application are available here.

Need NRP?

We Have Two Options This Year...

MANA is offering an NRP half-day 5-hour precon on Thursday which is geared toward the home birth setting. Additionally, for midwives/students who are re-certifying, we are also offering NRP check-off. Available from 11:00am - 4:00pm Friday (ONLY) in the NARM suite by Michelle Lynch, BSN, RN. Michelle is the Neonatal Clinical Educator at DeKalb Medical in Decatur, Georgia. Please note this is only for midwives/students who are re-certifying — there will be no instruction. You must bring proof of passing the online test within the last 30 days. Contact Debbie Pulley for an appointment time or claim your spot here. Cost $30 payable on site.
