It’s a compounding draw that brings you back every year. It’s like-minded people getting together to discuss the latest issues, the emerging trends. It’s a great place to take stock, refresh, think about what you’ve done over the past year and what’s coming in the year ahead, and how you can connect your issues to the issues of other groups. There’s no other conference like it.
