I have started to think about conferences that I will be attending this upcoming year. I have the opportunity to work outside of my functional area in a collateral assignment for 10 hours a week and have started to plan to attend their regional conference versus my main functional area’s regional conference. The reason behind this is that I see myself moving into that functional area and I believe this would be a great way to start to connect with professionals in that area. I was curious if you have attended a conference outside of your functional area? I would like to hear why!
