The Conference Theme:


As GBA convenes in Maui, Hawaii  at the Grand Wailea Resort Hotel & Spa for our 2019 Spring Conference, we will focus on kicking off our year-long 50th Anniversary Celebration!  We will reflect on GBA’s 50 years of contributions to our industry and highlight the accomplishments our association has made in delivering unique professional resources, programs, and services that help our member-firms excel and differentiate themselves making them stronger, smarter, more successful, and more influential.

Our conference will include presentations on subjects that will help our members build upon the past and look to the future. The focus will be on the improvement of business practices that incrementally impact safety, quality, efficiency, employee retention, client services, and financial performance.
