Great meeting in Minneapolis

NAM Minneapolis Group Photo - Aug15Minneapolis will host the Super Bowl in 2018, but Lisa Hills and her team were in championship form already, hosting the 2015 NAM annual meeting in August. It was a terrific meeting with informative, engaging sessions and plenty of fun and hospitality to add to the mix. Thank you, Lisa, for a great time!
