Networking and Special Events

Join your colleagues at these various networking events during the conference.

It’s more than meeting people, it’s connecting with the right people for knowledge sharing, best practices, career connections…and socializing. The SHEA Spring Conference has planned many different ways for you to connect during the conference. Meet and discuss issues and strategies with others in your area of work. Spring is the place to create future opportunities for collaboration.
