We consistently travel to events around the country for two reasons – to stay current on the latest trends, speakers and conference best practices, and to support events we feel are doing great work.
Our travels this late winter/spring/early summer will once again take us all over the U.S. We encourage everyone in our community to come out and join us.
Just a few of the events we’ll be attending, supporting and hosting include:
