  • Oct. 9: Deadline to be included on ELFA annual convention roster
    One of the most important documents distributed at the ELFA 51st Annual Convention, scheduled Oct. 21 to 23 at the JW Marriott Desert Springs in Palm Desert, Calif., will be the attendee roster. If your name does not appear on the roster, convention goers will have a harder time finding you and meeting with you.

    The deadline to have your name included is midnight Eastern on Oct. 9. Online and mail-in registration must be received no later than this time.

    Registration will still be accepted on-site, and the online attendee listing will be updated to include those who register after Oct. 9. However, we strongly encourage you to register early enough to make sure your name appears on the attendee roster. Register for the convention. LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
