2011 CONFERENCE

Welcome to the 2011 NAME Conference Materials Page! We look forward to seeing you in Albuquerque soon. Below you will find two versions of our Conference Program: the Detailed Program has session descriptions, objectives and bios. The At-a-glance version contains links to PowerPoints and handouts for most sessions.

Use the link below to access the Detailed Conference Program. To remain GREEN, NAME will not be providing you a copy of the Detailed Program or the session handouts/PowerPoints onsite.

Before you arrive, we recommend you look at the Detailed Program and consider the sessions you are likely to attend. Then use the At-a-glance Program below to download any of these documents—PowerPoints, handouts, Detailed Program onto your iPad, laptop, or other “GREEN” device prior to arriving in Albuquerque, or you can print the handouts and bring them with you to New Mexico.

Some sessions do not have handouts or PowerPoints posted yet. Those will either be provided onsite or will be posted after the Conference.

As NAME continues to be as “GREEN” as possible, most session handouts are loaded onto jump drives that each attendee will receive in Albuquerque.

We thank you for attending this year's Conference. We promise you a week of varied topics, presented by experts from across the country, and enjoyable networking with friends and colleagues. Please let us know any questions or technical difficulties you may encounter.

Respectfully yours,

The NAME 2011 Conference Committee
