Every year after the national conference NAMSS receives a number of requests from attendees asking for a few more advanced sessions for experienced MSSPs. I believe, being a “seasoned” professional and all, that I’ve probably submitted that request myself a time or two over the years.
Sometimes the suggestion is made that we offer two tracks, advanced and beginner. Most attendees would select the advanced track, and in truth, that’s what the Conference Committee aims for when developing the content of the annual programs. Very few sessions are specifically designed for people new to the field.
I understand the request. Each year I pick up a few tips and innovative ideas, but nothing ever quite matches the excitement I felt while attending my first couple of conferences; absorbing all that great information, meeting all those savvy people, and just being a part of this fascinating profession.
So let’s stretch our minds and imaginations – the slate is blank. Money is no object. (I’ve always wanted to be able to say that!) In fact, there are no limits at all - you have been asked to design the “perfect” NAMSS Conference for experienced MSSPs. Your peers are looking to you for innovation, education, and a dash of fun.
