2022 Winter Conference

Thursday, March 3rd 

"Sustainability - Critical Initiatives Driving our Industry"

In light of the recent surge in COVID and the resulting impact on corporate travel policies, we have made the difficult decision to reformat our 2022 conference as a virtual conference - very similar to our 2021 conference.

The presentations will be available live via Zoom conferencing, each lasting approximately 45 minutes with additional time available for your questions.  As is our tradition, there is "no charge" for the conference, but you do need to preregister to receive the link to the presentations.
