National Conference

Conference Agenda

October 31-November 2

We are planning fun pre-conference events and knock-your-socks-off conference sessions.
Oh, yeah, and a TON of amazing wine. Come back to this page for updates.


Registration opens Monday, June 17 at 9 a.m. ET

If you plan to attend, don't delay. We expect this conference may sell out.

How to register Log in from the top of this page or click on the link we will email to members the day before. You’ll be asked to log in to your AWS profile, so make sure you have your username and password and test it before hand to make sure it works. (Not sure of your log in info? Call or email us and we'll get it to you)

As in the past few years, you’ll make your conference session selections at a later date.

Our national conference is only for members, but joining is easy. Click the Join Now link at the top of the page.
