Start the day with breakfast and welcome address from our 2016 President Carmen Hayter. Then enjoy our opening session, "What If...?" featuring keynote speaker Mike Rayburn, a world-class guitarist and stand up comedian. In his hilarious, musically amazing, motivational keynote, he uses his guitar and comedy to teach three simple, powerful tools attendees can use immediately and forever to access their unrealized potential, to look at old things in a new way, and to leap beyond their perceived limitations.
Enjoy a full day of educational topics to choose from (don't forget to visit the vendors and sponsors between classes!), then stretch your legs with a Wellness Walk at the end of the day before our Evening Reception with social hour and light appetizers. 


Enjoy another full day of educational topics and catch those vendors and sponsors you didn't get to see the day before. After a full day of classes, join us for the banquet, featuring some fun and entertaining inspired music by the band Limosine. Come dressed in your finest Star Wars apparel, and dance the night away! 


After a couple days of learning and fun, wind down with breakfast and our closing humorous, motivational speaker Tim Clue. Tim has spoken before such notables as former President George H.W Bush and economist Paul Krugman and is bringing "social" back into the meeting space by inspiring and connecting his audiences through laughter. 

Enjoy a few more classes then call it a week!

We look forward to seeing you this September in Spokane!
