AADE18 is almost here and we hope you'll be joining us in Baltimore for our MY AADE NETWORK events!
In January, we heard from CB leaders at our state CB training that scheduling time at the annual meeting to meet and network with one another would be very helpful — so on Thursday, Aug. 16 from 4:30-5:30 p.m. at the Baltimore Hilton, we’ve scheduled a CB leader meeting. Following that meeting, from 5:30-7:00 p.m. we’ll have our CB and COI networking reception.
We ask that representatives from all CBs and COIs be present at this annual event to showcase their groups, to encourage new member participation, and to sign up interested members who want to become more engaged with these groups. Everyone enjoys seeing the creativity of MY AADE NETWORK groups on display — with posters showing past events and activities, themes and giveaways associated with their states or practice areas, and of course the passion of our volunteer leaders staffing these tables!
On Friday, Aug. 17 from 2-3 p.m. in the Baltimore Convention Center, you’ll find the COI leader meeting. COI Leaders will meet and hear from AADE’s new Online Community Manager, Kevin Schaefer, as he shares tips on actively engaging AADE members in COI discussions. The meeting will also allow time for COI leaders to share and network with one another.
Pati, Cindy, Kevin, and I look forward to seeing you in Baltimore!
