We look forward to the 2021 Empower Conference at the Irving Convention Center on February 22nd and 23rd.  Attendees will be asked to wear masks and socially distance. The convention center advises that it has implemented safety protocols in compliance with local health authorities. Those protocols include reduced occupancy capacity, masks in all areas except when eating or drinking, additional hand sanitation stations, signage and floor markers to aid in social distancing, increased housekeeping and sanitizing the building multiple times a day. For those not attending in person, you may join us online.
