It’s the most wonderful time of the year . . . well, maybe not THE most, but it’s definitely a wonderful time and it’s just around the corner! It’s time for Orange Conference 2015! Over 6,000 of our closest friends will be here in Atlanta to experience three days of networking with leaders from across the country, learning from experts in every age demographic and enjoying some of today’s top communicators as we focus on this year’s theme—It’s Just a Phase!
