The program will begin on Tuesday, February 11, 2020 late afternoon with the First-timers Orientation and the Welcome Reception. The NABE Midyear Meeting programming will end on Thursday, February 13, 2020 with the Wrap-Up Networking Lunch.

Early Arrivals Dine-arounds

NEW this year - NABE is offering Early Arrivals Dine-arounds to provide meeting attendees arriving early on Tuesday, February 11, with an additional networking opportunity after the Tuesday Welcome Reception and before programming begins on Wednesday. Hosted by NABE leaders, the Early Arrivals Dine-arounds are a chance to go out to dinner at some unique Austin restaurants. Each dinner is Dutch-treat/pay-for-your-own-meal. Dine-around hosts will be your guide for the night and will help shepherd you to the restaurant and back to the Hilton. Select from seven different restaurants.

The deadline to sign-up for a Dine-around is January 31, 2020.
