The Awards Banquet has been moved to a luncheon and included in your registration fee.
You ask, we listen. Consistently each year attendees want more time to visit and share with others. This year we’re offering a Friday night session to do just that. Conversation Cafe allows you to have session content your way. Think about topics you are interested in or have knowledge of. You will be asked to submit your topic suggestions during the registration process. The Conference Committee will review those suggestions and create the discussion areas based on your input.
