We have been going to and sponsoring the Crittenden Golf Conference for a few years now, and are always excited to be involved with such a great group of people. Each year they bring together the best in the golf business for three days of continued education. We play a little golf, too. This year we are headed to Dallas, Texas for the 2012 Crittenden Golf Conference. The conference will take place October 1-3 at the Hyatt Regency Dallas. The golf outing will be at the Cowboys Golf Club. We like playing in the outing as it is the perfect time to meet and talk to other thought leaders in our industry.
