Connect & Celebrate Dinner:
Rendezvous Under the Stars

Come celebrate Vegas style!

Join us for an evening to relax and unwind after a full week of education and networking.  At 6:45 p.m., we will transition to the main ballroom, where the rest of the program will begin as we have dinner and a live performance from Louie Anderson.

Comedian Louie Anderson is a three-time Emmy Award® winner and one of the country’s most recognized and adored comics, named by Comedy Central as “One of 100 Greatest Stand-Up Comedians of All Time.” His career has spanned more than 30 years as a comedian, best-selling author and star of his own standup specials and sitcoms, winning his most recent Emmy for his costarring role as Christine Baskets on Zach Galifianakis’ Baskets on FX.

Musical entertainment will be provided throughout the evening by Michael Andrew and the Swingerhead Band.

For dinner seating, all tables will be open seating (with the exception of designated reserved tables).

Dress for this event is business casual … that means things like khaki pants, slacks, skirts/dresses, as well as short-sleeved polo shirts and long-sleeved shirts. Try to avoid wearing jeans, tennis shoes, T-shirts and sweatshirts.
