About MRA

As the part of the nation's most established and respected membership association for rehabilitation professionals, we welcome you to the Website of the Minnesota Rehabilitation Association (MRA).  MRA members work to eliminate barriers and increase employment opportunities for people with disabilities.  We provide our members opportunities for advocacy and increased awareness of issues through professional development and access to current research topics. Together, we work towards a society where there are no barriers, environmental or attitudinal, to full employment and participation in life. We invite you to join our growing community by becoming a member today!

Mission Statement

  • Active engagement with issues surrounding disability at local state and federal levels

Presidents Welcome 2016

It is my privilege to welcome you to the Minnesota Rehabilitation Association!

We are more than just an organization to provide opportunities for professional development; we bring people together to network, share opportunities and leverage resources in the field of disability. Whether this is your first time or you have been with MRA since its inception, I believe you find a renewed energy and excitement to be part of such a wonderful organization.

Each one of us face unique challenges in the field as we understand and navigate legislative changes such as WIOA, the Olmstead Plan, and the CACREP/CORE merger. Change is often scary and uncomfortable, but if we view change as an opportunity, we can influence positive outcomes. Our influence is only as strong as our collective voices. There has never been a time more important than now to come together and protect the identity of rehabilitation. We can and will accomplish this task together! As president I hope to lead MRA in growing its membership and collective voice, improving access to professional development opportunities in the districts, and building and developing future leaders.

There’s something magical about coming together and sharing our collective energy.  This spring we will gather in Lakeville, MN to discuss challenges as well as possibilities in our field. We are honored to invite Clayton Lee as our keynote speaker. I am pleased to invite you to join me at the Spring 2016 conference as we embark on “Oceans of Change, and Waves of Opportunities!”
