Meeting of the Members

Join us as we officially kick off COLLABORATE 18 at Quest's annual Meeting of the Members. This session celebrates what our community has accomplished in the last year and gives a preview of where Quest is heading. We will also acknowledge the outstanding service of our volunteers by recognizing the Quest Ambassadors, our Distinguished Service Award winners and our Board of Directors.

Buddy Match Meet & Greet Lunch

Quest COLLABORATE Attendees can be paired with another conference attendee through Quest’s “Buddy Match” Program. This is an ideal opportunity for first-time attendees to be paired with a conference veteran or for users looking to connect with someone in a similar job and/or industry. Buddies will be introduced in March giving plenty of time to meet and ask questions before the conference. Join us for lunch on Sunday so Buddies can meet in person before the conference even starts!
