Fall Conference 2014: Over But Not Forgotten!

If you made it down, you already know that it was another stellar conference this year at the beach.  The event was well attended, the speakers did a phenomenal job, the vendors were of excellent quality and quantity, and the price of the event was virtually unbeatable.  Oh, and the beach wasn’t too bad either 🙂

If you were not able to make it, there is always next year, but even before that, our Spring Conference is going to be held in Birmingham this year.  It is a one day event, and we will have more details about this soon, so please check back.
