National Meeting 2017

Can you believe it?!  Our fourth year.  Our 3rd National Meeting will be hard to beat but this year we have more than a few tricks up our sleeves.

Courses

Over 16 hours of COPE approved courses will be available along with important topics that are not COPE approved, but impactful to your practice.  Check out the course listing here.  We are continuing to add courses so don't be dismayed.  This is always a work in progress.

Texans, look for the Texas Professional Responsibility course to be offered.

 

Registration fees

Members are free this year!!!*  Why? Because of the support we receive and the success we are having in attracting new members.  As a non-profit organization, our mission is to return value back to our members and in this case, it is $399 in value for your your $250 annual dues payment.

Non-members may attend at our usual non-member price of $399 (a great deal), or you can join first (only $250) and then register for the meeting.

* The Association must secure a place for each attendee and are charged for meals and room nights regardless of whether you attend or not.   To compensate for last minute drop outs, please note that your credit card will be charged $100 to secured your place at the meeting.  If you attend the meeting, this same amount will be refunded to you at the close of the event. Those registering and not attending will recieve no refund.

Accommodations

We are back at the Southlake Hilton. Please register early as rooms will go quickly this year with no registration fee required. The Hilton Southlake is the only hotel in Southlake and if it fills, you will need to stay at a nearby hotel. If you miss booking at the Hilton, please try the nearby Best Western which is 3 miles away.

There is no group code required when you register.

 

Vendor Meetings

We would not be able to hold our meetings without the support of our vendor partners.  Therefore, all attendees are required to meet with 8 vendors of their choice.  Meetings will be scheduled in 20 minute intervals.

INNOVATION: This year, each vendor will have a mobile phone and will rate the quality of each interaction with our members - 1 to 5 stars.  Members can increase their score by attending more vendors meetings and most importantly, having quality interactions with the vendors you do meet with.  At the end of the event, the scores for each member will be tallied:

The top 10 scores will and a hotel costs underwritten entirely.*

The next 30 scores will have one night of hotel fees reimbursed.*

* Members should leave a copy of their hotel bill wioth conference staff before departing the hotel or send it in at a later date.

Schedule

We have a full schedule and to make sure everyone gets in everything they are looking for, we are starting early each day and ending as late as we can. 

Transportation

Dues to the various arrival times, members are responsible for their transportation from the airport to the hotel. Energeyes is sponsoring a van going back to the airport beginning Sunday at 12 noon until 6PM on the half hour. Members traveling outside that window of departure will need to make their own arrangements.
