“Several years ago, we decided to give our annual user conference a name that reflected the spirit of the event, and we unanimously decided on ‘Connect,’” said Dexter + Chaney President and CEO Norbert Orth. “We certainly made the right call because we’ve been able to build an even stronger brand for our conference. Each year, I am honored to connect with our clients and prospective clients, business and technology partners, and respected industry leaders at this event. And this year, we’ll have a lot of good stories to tell and exciting new enhancements to show folks.”
