COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO - Due to the lack of registrations for the first NWBA Annual Congress, we have made some changes to the program, based upon feedback of the members. The NWBA Annual Congress is still scheduled at the Cheyenne Conference Mountain Resort in Colorado Springs, CO, June 14-17. We have eliminated the $450 registration fee, and reduced various programs that is reflected in the schedule below. Attendees will be responsible for their own travel, hotel, meals, and incidental expenses.
All NWBA members have an opportunity to attend the NWBA Annual Congress. The registration deadline for the NWBA Annual Congress has been extended to Sunday, June 3. NWBA members planning to only attend the Annual Assembly from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 16, must still complete a entry for registration and select the “Annual Assembly” option.
The deadline to reserve a room at the “NWBA” group rate at the Cheyenne Conference Mountain Resort is Monday, June 4. The “NWBA” group rate is $169 per night plus tax. Please contact the Cheyenne Conference Mountain Resort directly to book your accomedations at (719) 538-4000 or http://www.cheyennemountain.com/.
The Annual Congress was developed based on the feedback from members in the 2016-17 season survey. During the Congress, ample time has been scheduled for members to discuss key items within the respective Divisions. The concept of the Annual Congress is to provide members an opportunity to attend a variety of best practice seminars that are pertinent to the overall development for the member and the NWBA.
In the future, we will be evaluating how best to accomplish an Annual Congress event that is cost effective for the betterment of all members. If you or your team are interested in hosting a future Annual Congress, please contact me directly for requirements.
