We are looking forward to coming back together in 2022 and hosting our Annual Institute  in person in Wilmington, DE.  Each year we have a theme for our Annual Institute, which we use as a basis to select our keynote speakers, inspire our presenters, and connect with our registrants.

Normally our themes are determined by the members of our Executive Board, but this year we are looking to you, our registrants, for this prestigious honor. We know you are a creative bunch and we are excited to hear your ideas!

Submit your theme by May 14, 2021 and our Executive Board will vote to determine the winning idea. Winners will be announced in our June newsletter!!
