The MHEDA Journal - Third Quarter, 2016 - (Page 86)

C o n v e n t i o n m 2016 RECAP HEDA celebrated its 61st Annual Convention from April 30-May 4, 2016, at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland. The event, which had more than 700 attendees, had a theme of "Passion With Purpose," and featured educational opportunities designed to give you and your company the tools necessary to unleash your passion for personal and professional excellence. This year's Convention blended educational opportunities with presentations from a variety of speakers about the importance of being community minded in your company's culture. In keeping with that theme, this year's Convention for the first time featured a "MHEDA Gives Back" event where care packages were put together by MHEDA members for the American Red Cross for veterans. As always, the networking component of Convention was just as important as the Educational opportunities. Returning this year was the MHEDA Convention App available for download 86 MHEDA | on any smart phone or tablet. The app included a schedule of events, speaker information and a QR code scanner for attendees to exchange contact information without having to fumble through their pockets for business cards. Other highlights included the Women in Industry breakfast and a booth at the Exhibitors' Showcase, as well as last year's MHEDA President Mark Milovich being honored for his contributions to the association and being bestowed with the Past President's green jacket by his father and former MHEDA President Mitch Milovich. Overall, MHEDA's 61st Annual Convention was invaluable to all who attended.
