Buddies Welcome Newbies
Wouldn’t it be nice to see a familiar face at your first conference? This mutually rewarding opportunity pairs “Newbies” (first-time attendees) with “Buddies” (seasoned attendees) to get the most from their conference experience.
Attention ATA-Certified Members:
You can earn 2.0 CEPs by participating as a Buddy! Participation will be verified before CEPs are awarded.
At this event, Newbie-Buddy pairs get practical networking tips and a chance to break the ice and get to know each other.
Walk-ins are welcome but, if you sign up by October 1, you'll receive helpful tips and more information in advance. Sign up when you register for the conference: Register Today!
Wednesday 12:15PM – 1:00PM
Wednesday 4:45PM – 5:30PM
During the Conference
Newbies and Buddies are encouraged to go to one session and one meal together so that Newbies can ask questions and Buddies can offer personalized advice.
Newbies will receive a little extra support as they navigate all the sessions and events, while Buddies are rewarded knowing they made someone feel welcome at their first conference.
