“In terms of opportunities for networking, professional development, and meeting up with old friends, the Annual Conference is by far the most productive few days of the year. All this, and we get to support our Society too!”

– Jonathan Derbridge, AZ


2015 Student-Professional Networking Event

2015 Student-Professional Networking Event

This year’s conference features two Major Networking Events open to all attendees who have purchased a four-day registration badge or a guest badge!



Outdoors Dinner and Networking Event at the Civic Plaza

Help us kick off a great conference with a light dinner on Albuquerque’s Civic Plaza. Enjoy a craft beer from one of Albuquerque’s many local breweries as the sun sets on the first day of the conference. Catch up with old friends and make new connections as traditional New Mexico music resonates through the Southwest evening air. This 6-9 p.m. event will, no doubt, leave you anxious to experience the rest of TWS live in Albuquerque!


Southwest Sendoff Networking Event

It’s been a great–and long–conference! Join us at the Southwest Sendoff Networking Event for some much needed rest and relaxation. Say goodbye to friends and colleagues, new and old. Enjoy a drink or two, on us, and celebrate an exciting week of wildlife on the dance floor while the DJ spins all the hottest mixes and classic favorites! The event runs from 8-10 p.m. in Ballroom ABC at the Albuquerque Convention Center.
