2024 Value Summit Update

By John Corcoran, PE, CVS – Director of Conferences, SAVE International

Hello, fellow Value Methodology (VM) professionals! I hope this issue of Value World finds you all well!

As I greet you with this article, we are less than one month away from the 2024 Value Summit. I am really getting excited to see everyone in person again, and hope you are too. We have more than 160 people registered, but that number is expected to grow right up to the start of the Summit.

The Value Summit Planning Committee is sprinting to the finish line. The major arrangements have been made and many final details are being addressed. The schedule has been posted on the website – I hope you have had an opportunity to review it and are excited about this year’s presentations. A lot of work has gone into the schedule so there is something for everyone.

Concurrent sessions begin Monday afternoon (June 3) and continue through the entire day on Tuesday (June 4), so there should be plenty of interesting options for all attendees. Just some of the topics addressed include Function Analysis, Facilitation, Transportation, and Manufacturing. As previously announced, those who attend the full Summit on Monday and Tuesday will receive 16 PDUs.

A lot of the details still being finalized are geared toward delivering a great personal experience for you beyond the PDUs. The First Time Attendee and President’s Receptions on Sunday night (June 2) will include some fun icebreaker activities that will continue through the Summit, and several attendees are participating in the gift exchange. The schedule includes 30-minute networking breaks in the morning and afternoon on both Monday and Tuesday which will give attendees time to visit with old friends and make new ones. The location of the exhibitor tables are being determined so visibility and interaction will be optimized. And, as always, our own Renee Hoekstra will be drawing tickets for door prizes.

As you can see, the Value Summit Planning Committee is working hard to achieve two distinct goals: to make the Summit informative and fun! We hope you agree we were successful at achieving both.

We look forward to seeing you in Nashville in just a few weeks. Until then, please stay healthy and safe.
