Buddies Welcome Newbies: Introduction

NEW TO THE CONFERENCE? 
Buddies Welcome Newbies aims to give every first-time attendee a familiar face at the conference. We will pair newcomers with veteran attendees (“Buddies”) who will commit to going to one meal and one session with their “Newbie.” At this session we will introduce Newbie-Buddy pairs, provide practical networking tips, and offer opportunities for attendees to break the ice and get to know their Buddies. We will focus on helping to set Newbies’ and Buddies’ expectations so they can make the most of their time and interactions. 

This mutually rewarding opportunity pairs “Newbies” (first-time attendees) and “Buddies” (seasoned attendees) to get the most from their ATA60 experience. 

If you wish to participate, we encourage you to SIGN UP NOW
