Forming Our Future

Forming Our Future

2020 Highlights

Forming Our Future 2020 was a blast! The island of Oahu created a beautiful backdrop for four days of networking and learning. With more than 200 participants, the conference brought together first timers and seasoned attendees. From the amazing views of Diamond Head to numerous rainbows to fire spinning during the luau, Honolulu was a great host and we cannot wait for 2021 in Key Largo, FL.
