For our 2017 NVG, our planning committee decided to include a special track to focus on technology and weave this as a theme throughout the conference. We'll be kicking this off with one of our very first general sessions: "The Digital Evolution: Empowering You and Your Village." In this discussion, our speakers will discuss how our Villages can best benefit from the technology in our world today while also recognizing the mix of our Village's needs. They will also touch on how can we use technology to maintain health and achieve healthy longevity. In our tech breakout sessions, we will have hands on workshops on creating social media profiles and marketing for your Village. We will also be hearing from different software solutions that Villages use to keep them running smoothly.

Thanks to our 2017 NVG Sponsors!
