My Intent Bracelet. What’s your Word?

The real purpose of anyone's life is to be fully involved in living at every age. You help people on their journey to live a life with intention. What virtue do you want more of in YOUR life? What is a challenge you want to overcome? What are you most passionate about? Choose a word when you register and we’ll etch it on a bracelet so you can wear it during the conference.

We know our annual meeting is a big place and we want to help you find new friends and colleagues to connect with. We also know sometimes you need to just get some work done that’s not conference-related. Grab a seat to power up, do some work, catch up with an old friend, or meet a new one. Join us for happy hour every day at 3:30 p.m.
