Remote working, flexible working and hybrid working are all here to stay. We've demonstrated that they can work - the task now is to make sure they do.
Join us for breakfast and hear from a panel of leaders in the industry as they share their experiences and lessons learned. They will answer some of your most pressing questions about remote work, including how to maintain culture, drive accountability, and track performance.
This program will also serve as our Annual Meeting. Meet the new board members and officers for the coming term. The Membership Committee will also draw the winner of the early bird renewal incentive $600 Amazon gift card prize.
This is an in-person event, however a livestream option is available. Select your participation choice during registration. Note: CPE is not offered to livestream attendees.
