You will be networking throughout the day so make sure to bring plenty of business cards! We have amazing Exhibitors in the Atrium so take time to visit with them at the breaks and during your networking time. Also, consider carpooling with someone to the conference. This way you can discuss what you learn on your way home and keep your development going - who knows what you might discover from each other!

We will be announcing this year's winner of the Christ Anderson Personal Innovation Award. We will be raising money with a Silent Auction and all net proceeds will benefit this scholarship fund. Come ready to bid on your favorite item and help support a cause near and dear to IWL.

Mothers' Room

We will have a mother's room available for our nursing mothers. Please stop by the help desk or ask one of the volunteers to direct you to the room. We would like to note that it will be a shared space with other mothers and you may need to plan accordingly.
