Bismarck-Mandan Welcomes MTJA!

MTJA 2024 Spring Conference in Bismarck-Mandan, North Dakota June 12-16, 2024

We look forward to welcoming you to Bismarck-Mandan this summer for the MTJA 2024 Spring Conference, June 12-16! Register now and start planning for a uniquely memorable week filled with immersion tours, professional development, networking and collective conversations.
It’s been a while since we have had the opportunity to meet in person and we could not be more excited to showcase our amazing communities along the Missouri River. We know that some of you have been here before, and others have not. Well, we can promise that even if you have, there are new things that you will be excited to see, experience and share!

Bismarck-Mandan is where the city meets the beautiful outdoors. Where an endless sky arches over two cities along the banks of the Missouri River in central North Dakota. We are the best of both worlds – metropolitan amenities along with wide-open spaces and a friendly hometown atmosphere. Bismarck, North Dakota's capital city, and its sister-city, Mandan, have everything that you need for a memorable stay.
  • Vibrant downtowns with boutiques, dining and nightlife
  • Seven golf courses, beautiful parks and riverside walking trails
  • Affordable rates for lodging, meals and transportation
  • Museums and historic sites that let you explore the area’s history and culture
  • Galleries showcasing the work of local artists
  • State parks for day trips or overnight camping adventures
  • Dakota Zoo, amusement park, waterparks and more for family fun

Weather in June

A common misconception is that it is always cold in North Dakota. We have beautiful sunny days in June, when the sun rises before 6 am and sets after 9:30 pm. More extended daylight hours mean summer activities are in full swing across Bismarck-Mandan. With an average of 15 hours and 48 minutes of daylight, June has the longest days of the year in Bismarck. The average high is 75° with an average low of 53°.
Kayaking on the Missouri River


Most of our activities will welcome casual attire with comfortable walking shoes. Depending on your choices for some activities, you will want to wear more athletic styles or dressier clothes. We’ll do our best to include this in the descriptions. In general, short sleeve shirts, lightweight jacket, shorts, long pants; jeans or casual slacks are fine, comfortable walking shoes. Hat or cap, sunglasses, sunscreen, small bag or day pack.
