Annual Conference

2014 Annual Conference

Mark your calendar to attend our 2014 conference in Atlanta, Georgia, October 1-3! First Step Staffing will be our host.

We’ll meet in Atlanta’s lively midtown neighborhood, just north of downtown and convenient to the airport via MARTA, the area’s transit service. This diverse and historic business district is home to a vibrant arts scene, Georgia Tech, and the beautiful, rambling Piedmont Park.

We’ll begin on Wednesday the 1st with sales ridealongs and pre-conference clinics, and gather for a networking reception that evening. Thursday will include a full day of sessions, vendor exhibits during lunch, and an evening social event. We’ll conclude on Friday morning with more ridealongs, a tour or two, and other learning and networking opportunities.

For budget planning purposes, our anticipated member conference registration fee is $225 and the room rate will be $169 plus tax ($196 per night inclusive).

Stay tuned for more program details, and we look forward to seeing you in Atlanta!
