Event Location and Conference Format 

The 2014 Fall Leadership Conference is being held at the Tinley Park Convention Center in Tinley Park, IL.  This venue will offer participants FREE parking, FREE Wi-Fi, lower hotel rates, and more variety in nearby restaurants.  As you review the detailed agenda for the conference, you will also notice that we are providing lunch on both days of the conference.  During the registration process, you will be asked for your boxed lunch preference for Day 2 and if you have any dietary needs and restrictions.  We have a total of six periods of breakout sessions, which means we will be concluding the conference at 2:00 pm.  We hope that you will enjoy the venue and these enhancements to our conference.
