We’ve Moved!

Utah ATD will begin holding our monthly events in a new, centrally located venue beginning January 19, 2017! Join us at the Residence Inn Murray (171 E 5300 S) to experience the first event at this updated and central location.

In addition to a new location, January will debut a change to the monthly event format. The event will begin at 11:30-12:00 with lunch and networking. Then, the presentation of the day will run from 12:00-1:30. Presentations will support a variety of areas of expertise, and a significant portion of each presentation will be dedicated to how the information can be used in practical applications. Many of these presentations will also feature activities and more opportunities for participation.

See you there!
