DFWAE Association Day 2015

The fabulous Hurst Conference Center in Hurst was the setting for a full-day of speakers, networking, lunch and mentoring with association professionals from the Dallas Fort Worth region who face the same challenges we all do in our association role. In the afternoon, the trade show hall presented opportunities to meet the suppliers and learn how they can assist us in our field.
