NASIG gives out more awards than any other organization or conference of its size and scope that I can think of. This year, for example, nineteen awards were given, including six awards for first-time attendees.

We also hold a first-timers’ reception every year. During the reception, which is scheduled just before the conference kicks off, first-time attendees meet up with conference mentors, and there is also a drawing for some cool prizes. NASIG Board members also attend to welcome everyone to the conference, and frequently serve as mentors.

This year, we had a good time even though a sudden squall of rain meant a last minute venue change from an outdoor terrace at the conference hotel to an indoor room.
