2018 Annual Congress

The Lake City...Coeur d'Alene

Defining the magic of Lake Coeur d'Alene is a challenge, at best.  But let's try by beginning with a spectacular North Idaho sunset and moonrise, the plunge of an osprey after a fish and the glowing lights of downtown Coeur d'Alene reflecting across its waters at night.  We can say for certain, though, that it is the perfect backdrop to your next education event.  Our collection of the professions best educators in one of the country's most beautiful locations has added its own magic to the consistent growth of our Annual Congress.  It wouldn't surprise us to have you consider taking extra time before, or after this year's event!  At the very least, follow the link above for a look at what we promise will be a memorable education opportunity.
