Tuesday Group Dinners
A tradition for IPAC conferences is our annual group-dinner night. IPAC group dinners dedicate time for attendees to exchange ideas, share challenges and successes, and discuss hot topics while enjoying dinner. We have been scouting out the best restaurants around Birmingham and will have sign-up sheets, along with menus, at the registration desk Monday and Tuesday during the conference. Come and check out the menu and sign-up for a group dinner! Our Social Committee will arrange the group’s reservation and a meeting time and location to travel to the restaurant together.
A long-standing, fun-filled IPAC tradition, the hospitality suite will be open until 12:00 a.m. Sunday – Tuesday following the last event for the evening. This is a great place to catch up and network in an informal setting. Meet this year’s keynote speakers, workshop instructors, conference presenters, and fellow attendees. Get to know the IPAC board and conference planning committee and learn about how you can get involved with IPAC! Drinks and snacks will be provided.
