Post Conference 2015

I want to start off by saying thank you and congratulations to Missy Morris, your conference chair, for a very, very successful conference.  Missy has done an amazing job over the past several years putting together conferences, each year surpassing the last.  She is already working on next year’s conference and has some great speakers already lined up.  Our Tuesday night event was a great success and I hope everyone had a chance to attend.  We will look at expanding this next year. 


We had over 550 people in attendance at this year’s conference, almost 100 more than last year.  Please know that we are actively looking for a conference site to return to the north/south rotation.  As long as our attendance continues to grow, we will need to find a facility that can accommodate over 600 attendees.  You can look to the website in the future to understand what hotels require of CAHN to hold a conference in their hotel/conference center. 


For those of you who attended this year’s conference, I want to thank you for your patience with the elevators.  We knew one of the elevators was going to be down for replacement, which should have left three working elevators.  Unfortunately, the elevators have been in operation for the past 15 years and have had over 3 million calls for their life.  Murphy’s Law took over and of course we lost a second elevator, which was beyond anyone’s control.  The part that went out was the drive shaft, which had to be manufactured, not a quick fix.  The good news is the elevators should all be replaced by next year.  Lastly for the hotel, again Murphy was in the house and a water leak occurred.  The hotel took quick action and moved and/or cleaned the rooms in question.  We are at the Embassy Suites in Anaheim for one more year. We are actively looking for larger sites for the future.


As always this is your association and we ask for your suggestions or comments.  Please contact any board member, State, North or South with any questions or concerns.  We need your suggestions to continue to improve our services to our members.
