Re Hall of Fame Luncheon


Hall of Fame Cover ShotWhether you are attending the D21 Fall Conference 2015 Hall of Fame Luncheon, or not, this document will be of interest to you. 


Here is a link to this year's Hall of Fame Recognition Booklet


We've only printed 35 copies of the program for the conference.


Conference registrants are encouraged to print a copy of this program if they prefer looking through paper or would like to keep a copy.


It would be helpful if you forward a copy to your smart phones or tablets so you can open them up during the luncheon.


You will notice that the Major Award winners list is missing in the program. That is intentional. We want to keep the suspense up until the time of presentation.


There will also be slides projected on a screen, so don’t fret if you don’t have an electronic device that you plan on bringing to the luncheon.

See you there!
