      ADVANCE Justification Pointers

       

      You see the value in the education, networking and exhibitor discovery provided by 2022 ADVANCE, but your superiors may be unfamiliar. Introduce them to all the value your agency can gain through your attendance with the pointers below:

       

      • Create a personal agenda to be presented to your supervisor. In it, identify which breakout sessions you will attend and highlight how these sessions will benefit your agency.
      • Offer to deliver a short presentation upon your return summarizing what you’ve learned or prepare written briefs for colleagues on each session to spread the knowledge throughout your agency.
      • Share syllabi and handouts with your colleagues afterward.
      • Remind your superiors that the training earns you POST credit hours.
      • Offer to share a room with another agency employee to reduce hotel expenses.
      • Register early to qualify for discounted rates.
      • Take inventory of what supplies and technology your agency may need over the next year. Then, check out the exhibitor list to create a list of which companies can assist you in restocking, reconsidering current purchases and discovering new cost-cutting technology.
      • Present other benefits, such as networking to learn what other agencies of the same size are doing.

      Expo information coming soon!
