​Hello Partners!

 
In just over a week I will be seeing all of you in Washington, D.C., and I can’t wait! With WPC so close, I want to remind everyone to make time in your schedule for the track keynote sessions. The track keynotes are designed to provide an overview of each industry megatrend, and will help you decide which other sessions to attend throughout the week.
 
Before you select your sessions for WPC, watch the FTA video on how to choose the most relevant sessions for you. Partner Jeff Hilton has been attending WPC since 2003, and offers useful insights on choosing sessions. Hear his advice on how to get the most out of WPC and find out which sessions are historically most valuable.
