President's Remarks

Emily Sudermann, JD
Lincoln Financial Group

The 107th Annual Education Conference held in Orlando, Florida was a glowing success by all accounts. The feedback we received from the close to 450 attendees was overwhelmingly positive. The location, the conference facilities and the quality of the programming coordinated by our hardworking committees, were all universally well received. I want to personally thank all of the folks who spend countless hours ensuring the conference is a hit.

Looking forward, we have already begun to roll up our sleeves and start planning for the 108th Annual Education Conference which will be held in sunny San Diego, California September 17th – 20th. The Annual Conference Team met in November as did the Officers who held a strategic planning session. We took your feedback and plan to incorporate many of the suggestions we received to make this the best conference yet!

The ICA committees will meet in person January 25th-27th, 2017 at the Westin La Paloma in Tucson, Arizona where the hard work for planning next year’s conference really gets underway. If you are involved with a committee, please be sure to register and make your reservation with the hotel by January 3rd to ensure you obtain the ICA room rate.

 Also, please mark your calendar to sign up for the next webinar scheduled for February 15, 2017. The webinar will be hosted by the Disability Committee.

 I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and wish you much peace and happiness in the New Year!
