Why You Should Attend
1. The TOPICS were just announced (and they're everything)
Every hot topic will be covered! This includes regulatory and policy updates, SMART review process and potential harm, governance, Loan Processing Symposium takeaways, economic development models, eligibility and franchise, marketing the 504, and others.
2. It's in SBA Headquarters' BACKYARD
Due to sheer proximity, Washington, D.C. is the best place to attend a midyear conference when the goal is to interact with SBA headquarters.
3. GREAT RATES are still available through 4/13
You may think you missed the early bird, given that the conference is less than two months away! But in fact, the early bird member rate of $400 (and the non-member early bird rate of $500) is available through April 13, 2015. Check rates.
4. Your STATE ONE-PAGER story could be selected and featured
NADCO is choosing one borrower story from each state to represent that state on The Hill. Though the Spring Summit is not a government relations conference, advocacy will be a key theme. When you visit your congressional leaders to advocate for 504 and debt refi, be sure to bring an example of the good work you do! Submit a story here.
...and most importantly
5. District Taco is ONLY available in DC and Northern VA
This is serious people, how often do you get to eat District Taco? You would have to fly all the way to DC just to enjoy it. AND by the time you had landed back home, you would have probably eaten it all, even if you intended to save some, because you have no self control and you should really consider joining a gym before summer - even though the one by your house is a little pricy - because then maybe your Mom will call you more because now she just calls your sibling because he/she is leaner and more successful than you and you have deep seeded insecurities about that. I don't know your situation - I don't judge. The point is, now you don't need to make a special trip to enjoy District Taco because you'll be in DC anyway for the conference. District Taco locations.
Special Side Note: Mondays and Thursdays are Shrimp Taco Days while Tuesdays and Fridays are Fish Taco Days.
