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
MHEDA | themhedajournal.org
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. Attendees who want to relive their favorite
presentations or see those they may have missed can do so
online at mheda.org/tv.
