We all have tremendous demands for our time and attention. I know when I am invited to attend a conference like NETWORK, I always stop to evaluate whether it will be worthy of my time.

Is it worth being away from my family and my business? Is it an effective use of my time where I will find value and tangible results? Knowing these are the expectations we all put on our work travel, we pushed hard to create a conference at this year's NETWORK that we believe is worthy of your very valuable time.

For the first time this year, we assembled a committee of volunteer members to review last year’s highly successful NETWORK program and challenged them to find ways to exceed that success this year.  

I am proud and excited about the program they have prepared for this year’s conference in Chicago (Nov. 9-11 at the Fairmont Millennium Park). Eleven educational sessions presented by highly regarded thought-leaders as well as panel sessions of industry experts are sure to create takeaways well worth your time.  

Also, there will be a return of the highly popular “Great Ideas” roundtable sessions, where last year attendees received more than 100 best practices to improve their businesses. And a glimpse at the 2023 economic forecast from ASA’s Chief Economist Dr. Chris Kuehl will help make this year’s conference extremely valuable.

The education at NETWORK is valuable.
The networking is invaluable.

You will see in this year’s NETWORK program brochure here that we will be exploring several exciting and diverse topics, such as the impact of AI, winning the talent game and navigating the supply chain woes. In addition to this strong educational offering, there will be more than two days of networking opportunities to help expand your peer networks.

We all find the educational seminars to be valuable. However, we also know that some of the best takeaways and insights are found in the casual conversations that happen with industry friends and peers throughout the conference. The education is valuable. The networking is invaluable.

I know you have many choices of how to spend your time. I believe that as you review the strong and exciting program that we are offering you and your teams, you will agree that NETWORK2022 will be very worthwhile.

I look forward to seeing you in Chicago to celebrate our industry conference, together.

Be well,

Bill Condron
