First-Time Conference Attendee Networking Events

Approximately 400 first-time attendees join the Conference each year.  For 2014, we have put together a special program for our first-time attendees, with a focus on fun and networking. Check out the schedule below:  

Sunday, June 29
 
7-7:50 am
Room 105A 
 
Feel Great... with Zumba©
This 50-minute Zumba fitness class will be led by a certified Zumba instructor who also happens to be a member of the NASFAA staff. If you've never tried Zumba, don't worry, it's easy to follow and hard to stop. We will wrap up with plenty of time to get showered and changed before the next event.
