O’Rourke is also a regular panelist on NRP’s “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me and a copy of his latest book will be given to all attendees.

On April 3rd, the program will open at 8:15 am with the Annual Meeting and will run the full day  After the day’s sessions have concluded, we will adjourn for a wrap-up Reception and Dinner in a casual setting.  We are, after all, at the beach!
