Attendees gathered in picturesque Pittsburgh, PA for the 45th Annual NAPSA Annual Conference and Training Institute to network with colleagues, get the latest research findings, learn from renowned speakers and presenters and have a little fun. But one of the largest contributions attendees made was the $2100 we collected for the American Red Cross to aid in hurricane relief efforts.
