Spring Multi-Networks Meeting

March 17-19 | U.S. Grant Hotel | San Diego, CA
Register Online | Hotel Reservation


Join a group of like-minded peers facing similar challenges in an informal idea-sharing session.  Don't miss out on this great opportunity to benchmark, discuss hot topics and, of course, network!

If you're a newcomer to the Network meeting or if you would like to enhance your experience, please join us for one of our preview webinars on March 9 and March 10. We plan to discuss: How to prepare for the introductions and roundtable session; how to prepare if participants are asked to share their experiences during a particular session; what to pack; how to effectively network. Plus, we will have time for questions!
