You took great care in selecting an administrative or executive assistant conference. Then you spend a lot of time and energy attending the conference. Now what? If you are like most people who attend conferences, you go home from the event and jump right back into home and work life; maybe toss your materials in the trash can or a drawer in the office (never to look at them again, even though you say you will.)

I guarantee they will be better people for doing so. They will learn valuable information from our speakers and their peers.
