In addition to our recognitions you will participate in "Lightning Rounds" where three of our Annual Supporters will give you 15-minute "lightning-fast" presentations! Moving around the room from presentation to presentation in small groups will keep you active, engaged, and provide you a networking opportunity. And you will leave the meeting with ideas about how to better engage your employees and refresh your health and wellness programs.

This year we will be taking pictures of teams and their award during the Lightning Rounds as well as recognizing you during the awards part of the meeting.
