Now taking flight well into the sunny months, we’ve dashed right through June. With the striking of the gavel, the virtual-only part of the convention has us excited for all of what is yet to come.
Preparations for onboarding by plane, train, or bus to the “Gateway of West” are in motion. No worries. There are plenty of warm days ahead of us to enjoy all that has been scheduled for us at convention. So, mark those final checks on the calendar, pack your bags and book your tickets, because we’re on the final stretch of our journey to Omaha.
With the closing of registration and those final touches on all that has been planned, we are just about ready for the 2022 ACB Conference and Convention “Here, There and Everywhere.” See you soon, whether in person or on Zoom!
