58th Annual Meeting
Grand Rapids Simulcast
Event registration will reopen in the summer
The pace of change has never been faster, and as that has accelerated, so has the amount of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity that all of us are called up on to negotiate. These stressors are so much part of the day-to-day landscape, they even have an acronym - VUCA. For this year's annual meeting, Inforum welcomes a trio of powerful women who will help you learn to understand and manage the VUCA in your life.
