NAELA 2014 UnProgram: January 17-18
Embassy Suites Dallas - DFW Airport North Outdoor World Hotel
Grapevine
, TX


What is the UnProgram? The UnProgram is a forum for you to talk about what is important to you — with your peers. There are no lecturers or teachers, only experienced moderators. There is no established agenda, only an innovative design to promote discussion that promotes learning through idea sharing and collaboration. You will gain real-life examples of how others have mastered these situations.

Understanding not everyone has the same need on every topic, there will be in-depth reviews of topics as well as a more general approach on other topics. The UnProgram is your opportunity to introduce yourself to new subjects that help expand your practical knowledge. It is also your opportunity to increase your technical knowledge with other topics you happen to be very experienced in.

NAELA is connecting you to a special Listserv set up just for the UnProgram as well as an online Community. This feature is the fastest way for you to set the topics/agenda you would like covered during the meeting as well as stay in touch with all the activities and updates. The community features forums, blogs, wikis, a document exchange library, a participant directory — all exclusively for UnProgram registrants. Keep the conversation going after you return with follow-up questions and ideas.

What is the Plus? Over the two days, you will have the opportunity to draft fee agreements, explore in-depth marketing/practice development plans, and not only recognize but prosecute "bad POAs."  Get ready to roll up your sleeves and draft documents on site in preparation for integrating them into your practice the following week.

Focusing on collaboration, learning from each other, and fun social activities, we hope the addition of these sessions will  make the 2014 UnProgram Plus unlike any NAELA program before.  Make your plans to join us in Dallas for two meetings in one!
