LETTER FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR


BY LAURA SHELTON, CMP


The 2013 DATIA Conference Was A Huge Success Silver Sponsors


over 640 atendees and 70 exhibit booths, the conference was DATIA’s largest and best yet. Nearly all of the 20+ sessions were rated as excellent, and atendees particularly loved Robert Stevenson’s opening session. Following the session, Robert spent nearly two hours answering atendee questions and signing copies of his book, How to Soar Like an Eagle in a World Full of Turkeys. Had he not had to catch a flight, I am sure he would have stayed longer. Each and every session was timely,


I


informative, and engaging. For that, a HUGE THANK YOU is due to each and every speaker. The conference session content is the main reason that people attend the DATIA conference and nearly every conversation I participated in or overheard was very positive. Of course, all of this wouldn’t have been


possible without the support of our spon- sors and exhibitors. As such, we would like to thank each and every exhibitor. In addi- tion, a special thanks goes to our confer- ence sponsors:


Presenting Sponsors Alere


Quest Diagnostics Platinum Sponsor


Clinical Reference Laboratory Gold Sponsor

’d like to thank the many participants who joined us in April at the 2013 An- nual Conference in Orlando, FL. With

On Tuesday evening of the conference,


guests were treated to the Quest Lounge where they enjoyed a beautiful and comfort- able lounge area where they could relax with hors d’oeuvres and beverages while networking. Ten, on Wednesday evening, participants were treated to the Alere Luau complete with Polynesian dancers, lots of food, and a great networking seting. Again, we thank everyone who participated


in the DATIA 2013 Annual Conference. DATIA is currently seeking presenters for its 2014 annual conference to be held May 28–30, 2014 in Phoenix, AZ and can only hope to top this year’s conference in 2014.
