days of learning and reconnecting. You can earn up to 15.5 CEs with more than 65 sessions in 16 tracks of learning. 

Taking place on Wednesday, October 13 is A Night of Inspiration: 2021 Gala & PAC Concert, the last event of convention and a great way to unwind with your colleagues. Enjoy a fun and relaxed dinner outdoors with live entertainment. Open to all, this is a separate ticketed event and can be added when you purchase a registration package.

This year’s entertainment is Michael Cavanaugh, known as the new voice of the American Rock & Roll Songbook and made famous for his piano/lead vocals in the Grammy and Tony award-winning Broadway musical Movin’ Out. Handpicked by Billy Joel himself, Cavanaugh evokes a style rivaling the Piano Man. In addition to all of Billy Joel's songbook, Cavanaugh delivers hits from Elton John, Queen, Cheap Trick, and many others.
