    Dear Friends:
     
    I have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to lead a tour to England this summer. Unfortunately, it's at the same time as the Wipfli National Training Conference in Las Vegas. While I am excited to go to England, I'm disappointed not to be a part of this year's conference. The sessions I was going to present will still be available and led by other great Wipfli trainers.
     
    I know the conference will include engaging trainers, relevant sessions, and important updates. I look forward to seeing you at other Wipfli trainings throughout the year and at the 2014 Wipfli National Training Conference.
     
    Kindly,
    Janet
