Long To-Do lists, growing ever longer, seem like a good reason to forego attending "another conference".  I know, I'm guilty of doing the same thing.  Just take a moment to reconsider ...


I've attended this conference for several years, but as an attendee - just like you.  It's been filled with lots of great speakers and topics, and is again this year.  But the most lasting memories from all of those years, are the connections I made (and the relationships built as a result of those connections) and the positive energy I walked away with.  What better way can you spend a Monday than being part of something that makes you feel good about the future?


So add "Attend NHBSR conference" to your To-Do list and I guarantee it will be one of the most satifying checkmarks you'll make on that list!  Go on, register now.
