Please join us in Providence, Rhode Island for our 6th Annual Networking Weekend. These events are so much fun and provide a relaxed, laid back atmosphere for learning and exchanging ideas. The conversations that you will have with other NADR members will leave you feeling recharged and motivated. Don’t we all need that?

See below for more event details.


Registration Fee: Early bird rate is $100 for members and $125 for nonmembers. The fee includes the Meet and Greet cocktail reception, a group breakfast, a speed networking session, and the presentation: NADR Think Tank: An Interactive Group Idea Share. Optional tickets will be available for purchase for a group dinner on Friday, 9/28 and we will be in town for the renown WaterFire show on Saturday at Sunset! Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to get to know fellow representatives! Register now; early bird rate expires 7/1!


Room Reservations: We will be staying at the Hilton Providence in walking distance to Federal Hill, Providence’s “Little Italy”. NADR has secured a discounted rate of $169 and a booking link will be provided upon event registration.


Tentative Agenda: The registration fee covers the agenda items marked by an asterisk. Anything else is optional and may have an additional fee.
