WHIMA Annual Conference In Review

There were so many sites to see at the Annual Conference – education, exhibitors, networking social events, job fair, Not-So-Silent Auction, photoshoot, and much more!  Some sessions pivoted to a virtual format due to health issues for speakers.  That was a first for WHIMA!  There were SO many sites and experiences that WHIMA is still gathering the photo memories to share with the membership!  Here are some of the comments from attendees.  Stay tuned for more memories!

“The conference planning committee once again went above and beyond for this conference. The VIP team did a fantastic job on the awards and scholarships! Solutions Corner had some great new exhibitors to choose from and make contacts.”

“LOVED the Funny to Money with Kent Raider, He was an inspiration, and had a lot of great tips for everyone! It really was a blessing to laugh and learn at the same time.”

“I really enjoyed the agenda this year. A good variety of topics and loved the two student academies this year. The career travels was a neat addition and enjoyed the time, even though short, with educators from all areas of the state.”
