A Welcome Message from the MN SWAP President....

The desire to form a state organization initially began during the summer of 1983 with the efforts of many interested activity leaders in the state of Minnesota. In the 30 years of existence, MN SWAP has grown to over 800 members. The annual fall conference draws over 400 activity professionals from around the state and is considered one of the top conferences in the nation for quality education and attendance.

The MN SWAP board is comprised of elected officers, committee chairpersons, conference co-chairs, and seven regional representatives from across the state.  Click on the “Regions” tab to the left and then click on your region on the map to access your region’s educational opportunities, meeting times and contact person.

Using the tabs on the left, you will find information related to activity and recreation professionals.  All those interested in quality of life issues for seniors are welcome to become a member by clicking on the membership tab and download the membership application.  If you have questions or comments related to MN SWAP, please feel free to contact me.
