Attendees will have an opportunity to attend seminars pertaining to what’s relevant for them. The Conference is being held at Dover Downs® Hotel & Casino. Local colleges joining us as collegiate sponsors for the Young Professional’s Conference are Delaware State University, Delaware Technical Community College, and Wesley College.
