The conference was well attended; around 430 professionals joined us in Glendale, Arizona. We were fortunate to have a schedule packed with high quality, academic content combined with wonderful social receptions, two of which we were able to host outside to enjoy the beautiful weather. This year we had a total of six keynote and invited speakers as well as more than 18 hours of educational content between plenary sessions and workshops. The entire event included a lot of fun with many opportunities for our community to engage and connect deeply with one another.
This year we added two new agenda items that were well received, including the Invited Panel and the Connections Brunch. During the panel, many wonderful nuggets of information were shared as Dr. Leslie Sherlin interviewed three talented, successful clinicians (Silvia Costales, Dr. Amber Fasula, Sebern Fisher) on their day-to-day experience using neurofeedback. We plan to incorporate this panel again next year, please feel free to send us any panelist suggestions. The Connections Brunch was a valuable time for our membership to discuss ways to build our professional community and the ISNR organization. The discussion points will be shared with both the Board of Directors and the membership soon.
If you enjoyed your experience at the conference in Glendale, please share your experiences with those who could not attend. Follow ISNR via social media (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) and share your positive experiences there too! In order to grow our membership and conference attendance, it is vital to share the value you received.
In closing, I’d like to say a special thank you to our sponsors who help make the conference possible. We had a record number of sponsors this year and it made the experience much more enriching.
