Top-notch education takes center stage as our speakers inform and delight attendees.  We've planned a mix of general business topics as well as industry specific topics requested by our membership.  Then take a break for an off-site lunch at Mi Tierra in Market Square.  The evening will continue with our annual Expo with dinner included, all on the Riverwalk.  This is an experience you won't want to miss!
