From the President
These are challenging economic times for all of us. Transportation and other costs are up while the economy is down. We know that travel and lodging expenses can keep many people from attending the Summit. Each year we try to hold Summit costs down while not cutting any events. This year it was a real challenge, but we have succeeded in keeping the registration fees the same as in past years. We’ve also listened to your comments and improved many areas. During these tough times, it’s more important than ever to come together to learn from, support and be inspired by each other. Please join me in Albuquerque this coming February and enjoy all that the Summit has to offer.
