Finding My Way In Palm Springs

The CUE 2017 National Conference is right around the corner, so I’m here to tell you what you’ll find around the corners at the conference.*

I suggest adding this link to your Use At National list of helpful websites. Behind those friendly blue underlined words lay your one stop shop for all your CUE 2017 National Conference map needs. But, because I’m a nice guy, and because my boss told me to, I’m going to give you some of the highlights and changes from last year.

The CUE 2017 National Conference has taken place at the Palm Springs Convention Center and Renaissance Hotel, the Hard Rock Hotel, and the Hilton. We are thrilled to announce that we’ve expanded to the Riviera as well. What can we say? When there’s so many incredible sessions to host we need as much space as we can get.

“But Doug,” I hear you ask. “Those aren’t next to each other. What if I want to get from one hotel to another in hurry so as to not miss valuable learning? My online schedule is packed! Isn’t there a faster way than walking?” I’m glad you asked, Imaginary Conference Goer. There is. We are bringing back our shuttle service-

Keep an eye on this space as the CUE 2017 National Conference gets closer to know more. We’ll be having posts about badging at the conference among others. We’ve already had blogs about the LeRoy’s Big Idea session on Saturday, 3/18, the Future Ready sessions by Spotlight Speaker Tom Murray, and Divergent Thinking by Closing Keynote Cathy Hunt. In the words of Agent K, “Imagine what you’ll know tomorrow.”

*That was clever, right? That’s why I make the big buck.
