Please respond by April 15 if you will be attending this informative session. 

There is no cost other than the dinner which is not mandatory to attend. The presentations will likely get underway around 6:30 so plan to be there a bit earlier if you're not expecting to attend the dinner. There will be a sign up sheet at the session for you to register and for credit tracking.

Space is limited so book now. Please pass this on to other applicators and companies that would benefit by this session.
