Why attend a national conference? • Leadership Development especially when affiliated with primary audience of the association – Conference topics and speakers are focused on building leaders in that community • Networking – MBA students and alumni from top MBA programs attend to develop their networks with each other and with organizations of interest • National & International Job Opportunities – Career Expos are focused on hiring diverse talent. These career fairs give you an opportunity to meet and interview with recruiters from organizations that may not recruit in the Northwest. These career EXPOs typically have 100-300 employers.
