FORT COLLINS, COLORADO IN-PERSON CONFERENCE

June 14-16, 2022 (includes individual access to virtual conference and all recordings)
 

We have crafted a personalized and strategically helpful career center growth experience for in-person conference attendees. We believe that genuine connections, refreshing atmosphere, cohesive and applicable content, and replicable take-home strategies are the cornerstones of an outstanding educational gathering. . . so we’ve blended them into The Collective 2022 conference experience. 

Join us to recharge, reconnect, and reimagine your career center's future with the beauty of the Rocky Mountains in the distance, the inspiration of local musicians infused into the conference, and the luxurious accommodations of the new Elizabeth Hotel (a Marriott property), all in the beloved city that is the official HQ for The Collective, and:  

  • Inspired Walt Disney to design Main Street, U.S.A. inside the main entrance Disneyland parks around the world.

  • Is the home of over 20 breweries with notables such as Anheuser-Busch, New Belgium Brewing Company, and Odell Brewing Company. 

  • Offers a tantalizing dining selection to satisfy your appetite with more restaurants per capita than most cities in America. In fact, we will recommend about 20 amazing restaurants all within walking distance of the conference hotel.
