Conference Overview

Our conference begins with registration and a Networking Mixer on Tuesday evening, October 9th. On Wednesday morning we start bright and early with a continental breakfast and vendor exhibits. Programming is kicked off with our energizing keynote speaker, Wade Younger, and is followed by an engaging day of presentations, small group/roundtable discussions, networking breaks, and lunch. In the evening you are invited to a banquet dinner and after dinner presentation. Guest tickets to attend the dinner are available in the ticket section. We continue Thursday with a strong line-up of more great programming to further sharpen your leadership skills. Continental breakfast, breaks, Wednesday's lunch, and the banquet dinner are all included with Conference Admission.
