FPA Retreat is a place of inclusion and welcomes the intersection of various age ranges and career experiences, and provides the opportunity to have in-depth conversations that may not be able to happen at industry conferences.

This year will be my third time experiencing FPA Retreat. I say experience because it’s more than just a conference-like atmosphere—it’s truly an experience worth having. Retreat’s agenda encourages and allows you to have thought-provoking dialogue with your peers and time for reflection, and provides content that goes beyond surface level.

With almost a decade of experience in the profession, I am still a NexGen’er and have a lot to learn. I appreciate the opportunity to learn from and talk to the pioneers of the profession who attend this Retreat annually. Each year is different and takes on its own unique identity. Retreat has been an awesome experience and I am looking forward to attending again this year!
