As an adoption agency/firm, networking is a key activity that is not only fun, but critical to your growth and business development.  Adoption is all about networking, building relationships and taking action. 

Building a successful agency/firm takes a lot of time and drive, so it’s good to have a network of friends and associates to draw energy from and keep you going.  By surrounding yourself with people who share a similar drive and ambition, you are more likely to move forward as a group. 

Please join us and your peers by attending the Thursday evening FAC dinner which is included in each of the conference registrations or can be purchased separately as a “Dinner and Evening Event” option.

Please book your hotel by clicking on the Mission Inn Resort logo.  There is a group discount for the conference.  The code for online booking of hotel rooms is 0317G15; this code needs to be entered in the GROUP CODE box.  (Do not put it in the CORP box.)  Ready, set, GO REGISTER!

And don’t forget, we will kick off the conference the day before with Adoption 101 training as an option, so book your hotel room for that as well.  Registration for that add-on will be live shortly. 

We are also looking to see if anyone would like to spend some time together Wednesday and/or Friday late afternoon/evening golfing or skeet shooting, renting one of the resorts pontoon boats for an afternoon on the water, or even doing the ropes course there.  There are a lot of great activity options (in addition to the pool and an amazing spa) at this resort so we hope we can make the most of them.  This is a prime networking opportunity to get to know your fellow colleagues even better and see how we can work together so please email Mary Wheatley directly ( if you have interest in any of these ideas and if there is enough interest we will proceed with making this possible.  Thanks!
