2011 DSA Conference Schedule ~ In Minneapolis & Portland: This new DSA and IMSA Regional ProKnowledge Education Program will be hosted in Minneapolis from July 16 to 18 and Portland, OR, September 24 to 26, 2011. There will be three tracks presented in the areas of Well Being and Aesthetics, Functional Business and Trends-Ahead of the Curve. These workshops are designed to give attendees insight such as: how to bring medicine and wellness together, daily business ideas and what’s coming next in our industry. Each session is presented by a team of nationally respected speakers.
Affordable, Better & Different ~ Quality Pro Knowledge Workshops: With only two more 2011 opportunities in Minnesota and Oregon, these new business, marketing, aesthetic, wellness, medical and trend workshops are perfect for full-service salon, day spa and medical spa owners. They are also great for massage therapists, aestheticians, nurses, cosmetologists, wellness practitioners, physicians and management teams from every discipline. Each conference features pre-negotiated low cost hotel rooms with easy access to local restaurants and entertainment. Registration Fees are flexible with one day for $165, two days for $220 and with registration an additional day of education is FREE -- 3 days total. The Registration Fee includes lunch each day and all 2011 attendees will receive a bonus 1 year membership in either association – a $199 value. To keep these events small and personalized, space will be limited, so register early. These very special advanced educational events are not trade shows. Attendees are able to earn up to 10 Continuing Education Units. While each state determines what acceptable CEU for licensure renewals is, you may contact Patti Biro for more information at Info@PattiBiro.com.
