Registration for the 2018 Users Meeting is NOW OPEN!
We are so excited about the 2018 Users Meeting in Atlanta March 8-10. Our venue this year is the Renaissance Waverly Hotel in Atlanta near the site of the new SunTrust Park for the Atlanta Braves. While it may not be baseball season, there are many new restaurants near the park at The Battery – a short walk from the hotel. We have lined up a GREAT slate of guest speakers and modified our class offerings based upon your input. Most of the speakers from prior years are returning based upon your evaluation.
Our Featured Speaker on Friday is Erin Brockovich, a renowned consumer Advocate who is righting wrongs every day on multiple fronts.
The Power of One
Erin Brockovich is one of those rare individuals whose own true story has become part of our public consciousness. Seen by millions as a symbol of American justice and the importance of fighting for the truth, Brockovich continues to speak out on behalf of those who can’t. After uncovering a 30-year long history of poisoning the groundwater in Hinkley, CA by PG&E, Brockovich dug in and didn’t give up until she had exposed the truth—and had gotten justice for its victims. She truly is proof that one person can make a difference, and she believes that everyone—in their own way—can do the same.
On Saturday, we will have the roundtable discussions based upon your role in the office. We will have a “facilitator” at each table, but it is intended to be open discussions where you can share ideas with staff in similar roles at other offices. We do have lunch on Saturday, and several repeat sessions in the afternoon.
We have set the classes up in “tracks” for specific jobs within your office, but you are free to request any schedule or speaker in the lineup. Since we now have multiple practices using our modules for Pediatric Dentistry – and many of you are considering it – we have included a track for Pediatric Dentistry. Please refer to the below instructions for registering online for ALL classes.
If you attended the past five years, you know how popular the Hands On Room has been. Once again, you have the opportunity to schedule an appointment for one-on-one time with one of our experts. To do this, please select “Request Hands On Time” when you register and pay for your classes. We will then contact you on a first-come, first-served basis and confirm your request or work out a different time; each timeslot can accommodate up to 5 staff from your office. Just like you do in your office, we will allow “Walk-ins,” but scheduled appointments will have priority.
