After the first day of conference sessions conclude (Thursday), head to the ballroom for a fun networking reception! Reconnect with old friends and colleagues, make new connections, visit with our sponsors (we couldn’t do this without them) all while you snack on fresh, hot appetizers and enjoy a cocktail or other beverage. This event is INCLUDED in your conference package and will be held from 4:30-6:30 p.m.
