I hope everyone's new year is off to a great start! With the beginning of a new year also marks the beginning of planning for NCAB events. In 2019 we will be having the annual NCAB Seminar at Turf Valley on September 11th and 12th. We will require speakers for this event and would like to request anyone interested in the wonderful opportunity to share either your expertise or research interests with the NCAB audience of professionals. This event is always well attended and hope to pull in members from other branches not having their own seminars.
We are still working on the finalized tracks so anyone interested please email the following people on the Program Committee with your topic and a brief synopsis.
We all look forward to this year's Seminar and hope you can take advantage of a wonderful platform to educate NCAB's members!
Thank you for your support!
