Luckily, Stratus Insurance offered to pay for 2 scholarships for the conference this year. I applied and today I received word that I had been selected as one of the two recipients. I get to attend the conference with 4 nights hotel stay plus $500 in travel expenses for free. You would have thought I had won the lottery.
This will be my first time west of the Mississippi River! I can't wait to go, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to meet many of you in person.
