Dates, Updated Format, and New Location

In recent years, many  of our attendees have urged us to schedule more free time in the conference agenda for networking. Since we understand the importance of this networking time, we have reworked this year’s agenda to incorporate longer breaks and more time before evening receptions.

This year, the conference will begin at Noon on Wednesday, November 1st and will conclude at Noon on Friday, November 3rd. By adding time on Wednesday, we have been able to add critical content, lengthen our breaks, and add free time prior to any evening activities.

After years of successful conferences in Old Town Alexandria, we have finally outgrown our space at the Alexandrian Hotel. This year we will hold our conference at the historic Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC. The new location will undoubtedly improve the overall experience for all of our attendees.
