No other CE venue even comes close to SECO.

I Love SECO!  Where else can you go that has this outstanding smorgasbord of speakers and continuing education.  The first time I attended SECO I was hooked.  No other CE venue even comes close to SECO.  It's not just the education... it's the fellowship, the networking, the technology, the exhibit hall, and the amazing staff.  Did I say, "I LOVE SECO!"?
