early 500 attendees and
well over 100 vendors
and sponsors gathered
in Orlando in April to
celebrate the 97th Annual
Meeting of the Association
under the banner of "Innovating for Impact:
A World of Opportunities."
Bookmarked by two engaging and
exciting general sessions, the educational
sessions throughout the event were
relevant, timely, and offered many ideas
that could be implemented right away on
your campus. Many of the sessions are
now available for download on the
NAEP website.
We started the conference with a peek
behind the curtains from a presentation by
Rick Wertsching, Vice President, Strategic
Sourcing Parks & Resorts for the Walt
Disney World Company. There were a lot
of great "did-you-know" facts presented,
including the number of turkey legs
purchased annually by the parks. (A
lot!) Our second full day brought with
it a panel discussion, with three Chief
Business Officers, moderated
by John Walda, President &
CEO of NACUBO. Our closing
keynote presentation had energy,
inspiration, and a lot of paint.
Artist David Garibaldi inspired us
with four unique paintings, two of
which will be seen at our 2019 meeting in
Kansas City!
In between our keynote sessions we
had more than 50 breakout educational
sessions over the course of three days,
an exhibit hall packed with more than 100
suppliers, and a wonderful E&I Mixer on
Tuesday evening. Our final day brought
our Awards Luncheon, where we had the
opportunity to recognize the volunteer
leaders of our Association. Kevin Holmes,
newly elected NAEP senior VP, is shown
presenting awards to our 2018 winners
(facing page).
Performance painter David Garibaldi,
closing keynote, presented an inspirational experience.
