The theme of this year’s conference is “Surveillance and Optimization through the Generations.” In today’s world, where five generations work side by side to guide our industry into the future, it is important to remember where we came from, who we are and where we are going. We hope this year’s theme will bring new thought and reflection to our members and bring insight to our young professionals and potential talent needed to accomplish our goals.
