2018 Career Resolutions #6 Annual Meetings

- Attend a professional conference

Many organizations sponsor annual conferences. If you are an engineer, NSBE has a conference; if you are a mathematician, NAM has a conference; if you work in project management, PMI has a conference and ASQ has a conference for six sigma professionals. In addition to these functional or field  specific conferences,

NSHMBA and NBMBAA have very large conferences each year for people across functional areas. These conferences offer seminars that can give you the latest industry knowledge, networking opportunities, job fairs, resume reviews and so much more.

Whether national or local, try to attend a professional conference this year. Many larger organizations will give you the time off and sponsor the related costs.

Have you ever been to a national professional conference? Which one? Did your company sponsor you? Let us know in the comments below.
