NARA 2015 Spring Conference: Facing Future Challenges

Posted on: in [ Articles ]

Sticking with our tradition of having the spring conference be more geared towards legislative, billing, and other administrative issues, this year’s NARA 2015 Spring Conference theme is – Facing Future Challenges: Embracing, Evolving, and Exceeding Expectations.  Similar to past years, the conference will be held in Washington D.C and will be hosted at the Renaissance Washington Dupont Circle hotel. Important Changes We have some important changes to note about this year’s conference from years past.

  1. Conference Days The days of the conference are Monday through Wednesday May 4th-6th. In past years we typically have hosted the conference on a Thursday through Saturday, but felt it would be more appropriate for our schedule of events and provide additional opportunities to get in touch with congressmen/women on the hill to make this change.
  2. Networking Opportunities This year we are excited to launch a new networking opportunity, Connections and Cocktails, for our members and solution partners. This event will be in a “speed dating” type of format and will provide each Owner/Provider the opportunity to request matches in categories of interest, and each Solution Partner the opportunity to meet key decision makers.  Solution Partners will complete profile information identifying their unique contributions for the identified categories ahead of time and a matching process will set up meetings between interested parties during allocated times.
