Are You Ready for Your Close-Up?

Professional headshots can be expensive and sometimes overlooked when entering the corporate world. The Young Titleholders are offering a day of headshots in the networking area this year at Conclave. Do your hair and makeup and get a free headshot! Maybe you’ve never had one done before, or maybe your picture is twenty years old and doesn’t look like you. Whatever the reason, don't miss this opportunity to make a great first impression.

Trivia Night is Back!
Wednesday, April 5, 9:15-11:15 p.m.

Get ready for some friendly competition! Test your knowledge of random facts and trivia at the annual Young Titleholders Trivia Night. This lively event always includes plenty of laughter and team effort. You never know what kind of trivia you’re going to get with past YT Presidents Lisa Bridge, CG, and Anna Samsonova, CGA, emceeing! The winning team may not get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but they will earn a year’s worth of bragging rights. Everyone is welcome! This year’s location will be announced soon.
