Cities We’ve Visited

Sunny Fort Lauderdale

Sunny Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale, FL

What more can be said about Greater Fort Lauderdale, FL? Our Fall 2018 meeting in Fort Lauderdale was nothing less than spectacular—with gorgeous weather, views and spaces.

Fort Lauderdale offered incredible dining and shopping attractions on top of its gorgeous beach resorts and attractive weather year-round.

Minnesota’s Rochester

Minnesota’s Rochester

Rochester, MN

Home to the world famous Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN was a no-brainer for the Health Professions Network’s Spring 2018 meeting.

For any group involved in health care, Rochester may be a holy city of sorts—and the fantastic facilities and programs at Mayo Clinic were certainly a spectacular attraction! But we were also treated to many excellent attractions in and around the city which are sure to be of interest.

Visit Alexandria

Visit Alexandria

Alexandria, VA

Fall of 2017 brought us to Alexandria, VA, just across the river from Washington, DC and only minutes away from Reagan National Airport.

Its proximity to DC might be reason enough to visit Alexandria, or host a conference there, but Alexandria itself has so much to offer in terms of attractions.
