Certain to be among the highlights is this year's keynote presentation by leadership consultant Lisa B. Marshall, who has built a nationwide reputation for providing practical, evidence-based guidance in an engaging and interactive manner.

The event will also feature the presentation of the annual CANP Awards, honoring two individuals who have distinguished themselves as fully engaged in the betterment of their association, profession and communities.

In addition to education and networking opportunities, attendees will enjoy the vendor expo, in which exhibitors from around the world showcase the latest in health care products and services.
