NECA NOW was held on April 13 and 14, 2021. This two day conference focused on leadership development with presentations by top business experts. The virtual event included four Plenary Sessions that began and ended with professional and personal development insights contractors can draw inspiration from, delivered by nationally known keynote speakers. Speakers included:
- Marcus Lemonis, CNBC’s “The Profit,” CEO of Camping World and Gander Outdoors
- Mike Rowe, Dirty Jobs, Somebody’s Gotta Do It
- Lisa Sun, Founder CEO of retail brand and confidence company, Gravitas
- Steve Pemberton, Chief People Officer at Workhuman, Former Chief Diversity Officer, Walgreens Boots Alliance
In addition to the Plenary Sessions, attendees had the opportunity to participate in 32 classes broken down into four paths on leadership, diversity+equity+inclusion, technology, and innovation.
Though this was a great virtual event, the Chapter is excited to return to in person conferences starting with the 2021 NECA Convention in Nashville, TN on October 9 – 12, 2021. Save the date!
