Maybe it's your first National Summit or maybe you've been attending since you were just starting in the profession. Even if you've been a regular, you still have to be able to show your boss that the time and expense of attendance are worth it to the bottom line. National Summit attendees have reported again and again that they've found real value by attending the National Summit and not just a getaway. You know you should go, and you want to go. Here are some talking points for use in selling your boss on the same proposition.
What Sets National Summit Apart
National Summit is the annual meeting for professional development in state government relations. It is where you and other industry GR leaders can convene to learn from experts in your field and network. Learn what is top of mind across the GR industry and how trends and approaches others take can be incorporated into your strategy.
Leading SGR Education
SGAC's National Summit is the one annual event that leaders can rely on to continue to grow their GR toolkit. National Summit's planning committee works hard developing solutions driven content and choosing speakers who are game changers in the field.
National Summit is also an unparalleled opportunity to access sessions that are credit eligible toward SGAC's Professional Certificate Program - the first state-specific comprehensive program devoted to your profession!
We're proud to celebrate 10 years of the State Government Affairs Professional Certificate Program this year, an achievement shared by a network of GR speakers, graduates, and enrollees who share a drive to better themselves, their organization, and the field.
Networking with Top GR Talent
Network with leading experts and benefit from their take on industry challenges. National Summit has small and large group networking opportunities. Included in your registration is entry to several networking receptions and events.
You have the additional opportunity of taking advantage of small group networking dine-arounds Wednesday night. SGAC has made small group reservations to ensure you spend dinner not just at a popular Las Vegas restaurant, but peer networking, making the most of your day.
To stay current in an ever-changing profession, you need to know the latest industry best practices and solutions. Ultimately participating in this unique industry opportunity makes your organization more productive and cost effective.
SGAC's National Summit provides professionals in Government Affairs with the valuable opportunity to significantly enhance their vocational knowledge and career skills by attending workshops, networking with specialists in state government, and serving on planning committees. - Dmitri Siegel, Celgene Corporation
