The 2017 Region VIII Conference will be held beginning Wed. Evening June 7 and end Sunday morning June 11, 2017.  The Westin has provided us with an exceptional rate, free internet, free parking and other amenities.

The conference will once again follow the familiar pattern of an opening reception on Wednesday evening, technical sessions beginning at 1:00 on Thursday and at 7:00 on Friday and Saturday. An audit roundtable discussion is planned for Sunday at 9:00.  There will be a golf tournament on Friday at 1:30 and there will also be many cocktail parties and receptions during the conference. As a thank you to our members who have attended with their spouse in the past, please bring them for free again this year!!!

The technical sessions will qualify for over 18 hours of CPE (We are working on CLE) and will include timely topics presented by some of the best speakers in their fields and in government including: Eric Solomon, Sheldon Kay, Handy Hevener, Jeff Friedman, Louis Cole, Larry Axelrod, Mark Silverman, and many others.

 Reservations can also be made by calling the Westin Resort at 1-843-681-4000 or 1-800-WESTIN1 and ask for the TEI Region VII Rate or by the links above.

 Again, please join us at this family friendly event.  Spouses that have attended the conference in the past five years are free, and if they have not the fee is only $75.  Each additional family member is $75 -- a great bargain as it includes the Wed opening reception, Thursday kids and teen program and dinner, friday kids and teen program, the Saturday closing reception and dinner, and breakfast/breakfast coupons on Sunday.  There will be exceptional new events and several new sponsors and exhibits
