Opportunities for Fun, Fitness and Friendship

The Conference offered many opportunities to meet new friends and renew longtime friendships. Attendees participated in a variety of fitness activities including stretching exercises, yoga, and morning walks with Tiffany Esser.

Another highlight of the Conference was the talent show which took place on Sunday evening. NHA members were entertained with songs, impressions, poetry, jokes and the movie Food Ink.

The dates and location for the 2011 Conference will be announced soon. We hope to see you there!
