From the Leadership Summit to the Executive Management Institute and Spring Wood Basics, NAWLA event planning and execution for 2023 is in full force, including preparations for this year’s regional meetings.
Kicking off in March and concluding in September, NAWLA will be hosting seven regional meetings for members and non-members. Curated by the Regional Meetings Committee, these one-day events will take place in both the United States and Canada, and offer peer-to-peer networking and educational opportunities on a local level.
Registration and additional information for each regional meeting will be shared via NAWLA HQ emails and posted on the NAWLA Regional Meetings webpage (nawla.org/Events/Regional-Meetings) as details become available throughout the year. If you have questions related to a specific regional meeting, please reach out to NAWLA at email@example.com.
