At their June Executive Council meeting members agreed to make some changes to Spring Conference. One such change includes changing from the traditional Friday-Saturday conference model due to feedback from colleagues and some observed drop-off in attendance on Saturday. In spite of contracts already being signed, Hilton Garden Inn was able to change the dates to Thursday-Friday April 7-8, 2016 for the next Spring Conference.
An additional change will include a reduced registration fee for early bird registrants. The Early Bird Discounted Rate will be extended to anyone who signs up for the spring conference at the October 9, 2015 fall conference.
