The Abila User and Development Conference in Nashville is just around the corner, April 11 through 13, and we want to make sure as a continuing education professional, you’re taking full advantage of all the event has to offer.

Here are some of the high notes that you can’t miss during your time in Music City!

Catch the Keynotes: Sleeping in during this conference is not recommended, as the two keynote sessions are can’t miss events! On Tuesday morning, Abila’s new CEO Craig Charlton will be speaking about leading the team with an “attitude of gratitude” for our customers. On Wednesday morning, Jonathan Sprinkles will teach us about the psychology of the human connection and how it drives engagement, loyalty, and profitability.

Give Back: Each year at AUDC we like to give back to our host community, with the help of our AUDC attendees. This year, we’ll help the Nashville Rescue Mission, which addresses homelessness and hopelessness in ways that are transformational. During the conference, please join us to assemble hygiene kits for those in need. Stop by and we will have all the supplies ready to go.

Learn About Learning: Join me for Wednesday’s session, “10 Keys to Enhancing the Elearning Member Experience,” where we’ll review ways you can ramp up your online learning offerings, including how to personalize the education and get the most bang for your buck! Also, don’t miss Thursday’s session about Freestone Learning Management System, which will introduce you to a tool to help put some of those keys in action.

Explore the Abila Marketplace: Make sure to stop by the Exhibit Hall and get to know our sponsors and exhibitors. There are a variety of organizations that can help you to better engage and interact with your members. Don’t forget to come by the Abila booth to say hi to our team, as well!

Help Us Help You: Need to learn about a new product feature? Want to know if there is a more efficient way to accomplish a task? The Product Support Lab gets you direct access to our product experts, so they can answer your questions and share best practices in a private one-to-one session.

Get Your Credit: We want to help you further your personal professional development, so look for the sessions certified for continuing education throughout your time at AUDC. There are options available for CFRE, CAE, and CPE.

Celebrate with Abila: We will kick off the conference with a Welcome Reception on Tuesday night, complete with hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, and live music in the Exhibit Hall. AUDC will wrap up with an After Party at Wildhorse Saloon, where dancing will inevitably ensue as we celebrate closing out three days of learning, networking, and fun! So, when you book your hotel, be sure to stay through Thursday night!
