Update

We have reached the maximum number of registrations for the 2017 seminar. Register below to add your name to the waitlist, and we will contact you should space become available. 

The 2017 edition of the seminar will feature general sessions and workshops focused on this year’s theme: Intentionally Safe. Join us from October 31st to November 2nd at the Hyatt Regency hotel in Wichita, Kansas.

General Sessions will take place in the mornings, and breakout workshops will be offered in the afternoons. Each workshop lasts 1 hour 45 minutes, allowing you to attend two workshops each day. All workshops will be offered twice during the week, giving you the opportunity to attend as many as six during the seminar.

If you can’t attend in person, join the webcast. We will be live webcasting the seminar general sessions and select workshops. We encourage you to hold a Safety Standdown viewing party – gather colleagues, fire up the projector and let the learning begin. You will be able to interact and ask questions of presenters in real-time. It’s the next best thing to being there!

Sign-up for our newsletter for more information on the webcast in the lead-up to the seminar.
