Click here to view President Mitchell Morton's message to attendees

The Board of Directors at SLMP is excited to announce a brand new format for the upcoming summit.  Based on feedback from our attendees over the past few years, you have indicated that sharing information is extremely valuable to you and your organization. 

You spoke, we listened!  Rather than the usual PowerPoint presentations for the entire two and a half days, we will be having multiple interactive Socratic table group discussions as well as formal presentations on a variety of topics that you told us are meaningful to you.

YOU will be part of the program every step of the way.  Less lecture, more participation!  More collaboration and problem solving on issues affecting YOU!

Please take a moment to view President-elect Trent Lewis as he describes this year's program here

This new format will need some additional involvement from more members in the form of Table Group Leaders.  But I don't know how to lead a group discussion, you say.  It's not as hard as you think, especially since SLMP will provide you with all the guidance you need. Check out this info from Trent on what it means to be a Table Group Leader. Yes, you CAN do it!

Registration Info
SLMP has made it more cost effective for you to bring more of your staff to the summit.  The more staff you bring, the better the individual registration fee gets!

Only 1 or 2 coming from your organization?  The fee is $350 per person
3 to 6 people on your registration? The fee is $300 per person
Bringing 7 or more people?  Yay!  You know the value of this event!  The fee is $250 per person

You will renew your organization's membership for 2022 along with your summit registration. Your one annual membership fee is for your entire organization so you only pay that once no matter how many staff you bring. If you are new to the organization, select the membership option that best fits you this year.  Not sure which option to choose, just ask!
