For our 2017 conference, we’ve made a fun change to our Friday night schedule! We typically hold a private tour and dinner for speakers and honorees, but this year we’re rounding up the whole crew and hitting the river for a majestic dinner cruise down the Potomac.

We’ve worked harder than ever in 2016, and we’ve truly moved mountains — from the passage of TSCA and President Obama becoming the first sitting president to acknowledge asbestos as a carcinogen, to securing priority status for asbestos risk evaluation and regulation by the U.S. EPA. For all of this, we DESERVE to celebrate as a community!

We hope it will provide the perfect casual get-together to get to know each other ahead of our conference on Saturday.

Please join us Friday, April 7, at 5 pm in the lobby of the conference hotel for an unforgettable Friday night to kick off what promises to be ADAO’s best conference yet!
