This year NABIE has made significant strides in rejuvenating our organization and our 2022 Conference will be our chance to show off our continued work as an association.  We have officially become a 501(c)3,  NABIE has a new logo to better reflect who we are and what we do, and we will be launching our new (and MUCH improved) website at our conference. 
We have planned a blockbuster conference, packed with the stellar education and networking opportunities that NABIE members have come to expect.  This year's conference will be held in Dallas and our hotel,  The Joule is nestled in the heart of Dallas' dazzling downtown. Our Texas based conference ambassadors, David Dotson, David Yancy, and Executive Director, Catherine Jones are looking forward to welcoming you to our state and showing all of our valued members some legendary Lone Star hospitality.
Not only do we have one of the best educational programs in NABIE's history, we have also have put a great deal of thought into professional networking.  Our closing dinner will be held in the storied Fort Worth Stockyards, at Lonesome Dove, celebrity chef Tim Love's restaurant, which is included in the cost of your conference registration.
