Welcome to the January 2018 edition of our E-News! This newsletter is a great way for us to keep you apprised of new developments in our office and in our offerings.


We have some fabulous events coming up in the next few months, so be sure to read closely - we don't want you to miss an opportunity!


When you see an event that interests you click the registration link to begin the enrollment process. Here's an important tip - remember to register early! Many of our contracts with speakers require that we fill a minimum number of seats in order for the session to run. We typically need to let them know 30 days in advance, so make sure you act fast.
