"20 Years of Advancing the Profession"
The 20th Annual Conference will again be at College of Saint Mary in Omaha. They did a wonderful job hosting us last year, and we wanted to keep the conference close to "home" (where NATI was founded).
Conference dates are: Friday August 2nd-Saturday August 3rd 2019
We will be sharing information about call for presenters, schedules, and other updates as they come up.
We look forward to seeing you there--it's 20 years so it'll be a big deal!
