A Message from Shawna
As members of SPIN and senior-level planners, we should hold ourselves and each other to a higher standard of behavior in the industry. As such, when we register, we show up. We don't cancel at the last minute unless it's a true emergency, and we NEVER NO-SHOW.
This is a huge problem in our industry, and we want to rise above it as the industry's most veteran segment. If you register, please honor your peers with your attendance and participation.
If you need to cancel due to an emergency, please email email@example.com.
