Have some fun at the Annual Forum Welcome Reception
While we are excited about all of the great sessions and speakers planned for the Annual Forum, we are equally excited about all of the fun planned for attendees. Since they do things big in Texas, we figured we should go big for this year's Welcome Reception. This year we are heading down to the historic Ft. Worth Stockyards to watch the Ft. Worth Herd Cattle Drive. After some time exploring the historic district we head over to Billy Bob's, the world's largest honky tonk. At Billy Bob's we will have a private room where attendees will enjoy great food and drinks as well as an opportunity to meet their fellow attendees. The Welcome Reception is included in the registration fee, guests are welcome, but require pre-registration. Transportation will be provided to and from the Hilton Hotel.
