It’s almost National Conference and Expo time and all roads are leading to Nashville, Tennessee. We’ve designed NatCon 2020 around the theme of “Piloting Change,” and compiled a dais of presenters - and an agenda of events - to aid you and all industry stakeholders, in doing just that!
Yes, there is still time to register to attend. But by all means, finalize your hotel accommodations! Nashville is a wonderfully popular city. And the JW Marriott is filling quickly. Please contact the hotel, today, to take care of business. I wouldn’t want you to be left out. (Note: the negotiated ‘special’ room rate is available for Tuesday-Thursday, March 24-26, ONLY!)
Now, if you continue to peruse this issue of The Link, and I hope that you will, you’ll find the “specifics” of the Conference agenda. So in this space, my space, I’d like to extend my personal ‘thank you’ to the industry suppliers and conference sponsors whose participation is making this year’s event one for the record books!
Expo 2020 is a sell-out! As we go to press, 41 industry suppliers have made plans to be “front and center” in Nashville. Beginning at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, March 25 and until 11 a.m. on Friday March 27, you’ll find them - and their solutions, strategies and technical expertise - ready, willing and able to assist you in your efforts. (For a preview of the Exhibit space, plus a list of participating suppliers to date, click here.)
Additionally, more than a few of them, along with many HMA member companies, have gone the “extra mile” for us, and have signed on as National Conference Sponsors! That, I call commitment to the nth degree! This additional financial support to the HMA enables us to enhance the overall Conference offerings to all participants.
HMA’s way of showing appreciation is to recognize all of our generous supporters during the National Conference events, in all of the Conference promo material, in our monthly newsletter, The Link, and all year long on the Home page of our member website, www.HMAmembers.org. Again I say, thank you all!
So, here we are. The stage is set! The Expo is a sell-out! I look forward to seeing you in March for HMA’s 2020 National Conference and Expo!
