The conference is held in the first quarter of each year, at varied locations in the U.S.... but normally in a hotel setting with classroom space, workout space, excellent and reasonably-priced accommodations, and warm weather!
This year, as you know, will be a little different. We'll be virtual, looking forward to having you join us from your own livingroom, dojo, or even a local park!
