More than 380 faculty and students attended Open 2011, the NCIIA's 15th Annual Conference, at the Westin Alexandria Hotel in Washington, D.C. from March 24-26. We would like to thank everyone who participated in our three days of knowledge sharing and network building.
In case you're filing your reimbursement form, the hotel rate was $189/night + tax.
Among the comments from attendees:
The NCIIA conference was one of the most productive conferences that I have attended!
Thanks to NCIIA for a great week. It was incredibly stimulating, challenging and validating. I know our team took what feels like a great leap forward with our project given all the input we received.
I love the conference; I always return with many ideas to pursue.
