NEXT GEN Committee Presents “Lead with Levity” with Karyn Buxman
Location: Texas Ballroom B/C
Time: Tuesday, November 7 at 4 p.m.
Successful people—in business, politics and life in general—have something in common: They understand that humor is an important trait for effective leaders. Join NAA’s NEXT GEN Committee to hear from Karyn Buxman, successful author and neurohumorist, as she uses (hysterical) personal anecdotes, (solid) medical research and (practical) tips to teach you how to use humor effectively in your daily work life.
Open to all Assembly of Delegates attendees, Buxman, one of only 227 people worldwide to be inducted into the National Speaker’s Association Speaker Hall of Fame.
NAAPAC Better Government Fund (BGF) Reception
Location: Billy Bob’s Texas, 2520 Rodeo Plaza, Fort Worth, TX 76164
We look forward to seeing everyone at the NAAPAC Better Government Fund (BGF) reception as we celebrate another record year for NAAPAC at a great location!
It’s not too late to purchase your tickets for Wednesday’s event at Billy Bob’s Texas from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Buses will be available from the Omni Fort Worth and will depart beginning at 6:15 p.m. Buses will run back to the Omni until 10 p.m. so that you can enjoy Fort Worth's historic Stockyards District. Make sure to get your wrist band upon arrival for access to the Texas Club and Guitar Bar.
This year’s event will be a little different than in previous years. Attendees will still have a chance to win an Apple Watch with a $50 donation to NAAPAC. Additionally, there are two new, Texas-themed events to take advantage of:
- For a $5 contribution to NAAPAC, ride the mechanical bull at Billy Bob's
- For $10, bid on one of four NAA Outlaws to ride the bull at the end of the evening!
