The 38th Annual NAOSMM Conference and Trade Show was an astounding success. The hosts, Heather McCollor and Melva Cain put a lot of work into making this one of the best conferences ever. Many thanks goes out to the Program Committee for putting together an informative array of seminars and workshops. The attendees wish to thanks the corporate vendors who attended the Trade Show. The vast amount of new products and innovations displayed by our corporate partners make the trip well worth while. Thanks to the Trade Show Coordinator for bringing the vendors together for this trade show.

This year we had 100 attendees including 26 first time attendees. Many of our members would not be able to travel to our conferences without the help of our Newsline advertisers and cooperate partners. Additionally, many of the breaks, evening events and key note speaker were available only due to the generous contributions of our corperate partners. We are so very grateful to all of them for making this and every conference successful.

Plans are already underway for next year's conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We hope to see many of you who attended this year at the Albuquerque conference. And if you have not attended a NAOSMM conference, or have not attended one recently, you will not be disappointed if you do attend. Remember, travel funds are available and you should check the Awards Page in the spring to apply for assistance to help you attend.
