Welcome Bash & Mini-Receptions

Sure, you could hang out in your hotel room answering email and “watching the tube” but that wouldn’t be any way to kick off your LTEN Annual Conference experience, now would it?

Put the laptop aside and join us for a couple of hours for a fun and casual networking.  Sample delightful cocktails and delicious appetizers while mixing and mingling. We host one heck of a party and you’ll be sorry to miss it. This event is open to all – no RSVP needed, just show up!

Charity Team-Building Activity at the Networking Party

Tuesday, June 12 ~ 6:00 – 7:30 PM
Desert Kivas Outdoor Meeting Space

While we bask in the sun at the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge we will be building bears for pediatric patients. Our recipient in 2018 will be another well-deserved institution, Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

We need you to make this year a success! The charity event has become increasingly popular thanks to the generosity of our members. When you register for the conference you have an opportunity to volunteer for a 20-minute time slot — 6:00, 6:30, 7:00 PM via your registration or by selecting your time here.

We will also have a contest with prizes for categories of different bears created.

In past years we have invited members to bring items to be donated; that won’t be possible with the bears. Many of you have also asked if monetary donations can be made and this year they can. Charitable contributions can be made directly to the Phoenix Children’s Hospital, on behalf of LTEN.

Click here to donate!

Thank you in advance for your generosity, in giving of your time as well as your financial support.

Networking Party & Charity Team-Building Activity

Tuesday, June 12 ~ 6:00 – 9:00 PM
Desert Kivas Outdoor Meeting Space

Imagine this. You’ve made it through day one – engaging workshops, interesting Learning Labs, conversations with peers and training partners, new ideas being sparked and ping-ponging everywhere. You may be ready to call in the towel or have a quiet dinner someplace nearby. DON’T DO IT! IMG_2448

So many have thought the same thing only to find out that they missed the fireworks, cocktails, dancing, games, laughter, etc. The LTEN staff spends months planning an evening you won’t soon forget. If there’s one thing you don’t want to skip, it is this very evening.

It gets even better. We start off the Networking Party with a feel-good charity team-building activity. IMG_2453 Needless to say, the entire evening is a win-win-win!

No RSVP or sign-up necessary; simply, join us!
