As part of NGAUS's ongoing efforts to improve the member experience, we are utilizing RFID-enabled badges at this year's General Conference & Exhibition. This technology allows NGAUS to better understand which sessions generate the most interest and will inform how future conferences are structured. Attendance information will only be gathered at official NGAUS events and will not provide any data about non-NGAUS activities. Attendees who have questions or who would like the technology disabled may see a customer service representative at the full-service registration counter.
