ARRTCon 2019-- A Full Day RA Conference-- Registration is Now Live!

I am so happy to announce ARRTCon 2019 coming November 14, 2019. Days like today are wonderful because this is something I have been working on for months and finally, the rest of you can register for this AMAZING full day program we have organized for you. It includes breakfast and lunch, and you get to choose your break out sessions.

We often have people come in from out of town for this event and it usually sells out, so now is the time to jump on this amazing opportunity.

See the details below including information about our 2 keynote speakers and feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
