April 6, 2021: I just wanted to update you on our Asheville seminar. Many locations are starting to reopen and we have been closely working with the Omni Grove Park Inn in the recent days to ensure that they will have all the necessary safety protocols in place prior to our arrival.
I would recommend that you click thru to see what to expect while in Asheville.
It has been a very intense and stressful last year, so we are very excited to finally start to return to our passion: providing practical CE in great locations.
Regarding the seminars: we will be following strict social distancing and mask requirements.
Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

The Omni Grove Park Inn Resort & Spa is one of the South’s most venerable and famous grand resorts. Built in 1913 from granite stones mined from Sunset Mountain, the resort overlooks the Asheville, North Carolina skyline and provides guests with majestic views of the legendary Blue Ridge Mountains. For decades, the Inn has been a favorite year-round destination for both leisure and business guests as the resort continues to lure future generations to its magical mountainside splendor. Its splendid views, old world charm, peerless amenities, and a long tradition of exceptional service and Southern hospitality make it a place to savor as one of the most enduringly original and exciting resorts in America.
