Help Us Celebrate 25 Years at the BEC Conference!

To help celebrate the 25th Anniversary of BEC, we're welcoming all past leaders of the conference. From Pat Rome in 1998 to our most recent chair Matt Kamper, all leaders and former leaders are scheduled to be on hand in Las Vegas and will participate in this year's event. And, to help commemorate our special milestone, our legacy chairs will be drawing several lucky winners of prize raffles.
