Region 1 Annual Business Conference

You are invited to attend our the 23rd Annual Region 1 Business Conference on Thursday and Friday, February 16-17, 2017.


Social Hour - Jeff James

Join us for hors d'oeuvres, a cash bar, and a live musical performance by Minnesota-based singer-songwriter Jeff James who will wow you with his percussive guitar playing style, beautiful fingerstyle picking, and silky but somehow gritty vocals (think of a cross combination of James Taylor and Gary Allan) which have been described as both unique and gripping. A quality experience you're sure to enjoy! 

Our Keynote Speaker - Deadra Stanton

Back by popular demand, please join us as our Thursday morning Keynote Speaker, Deadra Stanton, gets our business conference off to a great start with her keynote presentation - “Don’t Shoot Skinny Rabbits.”
