Learn. Grow. Share.

To achieve the best that’s in us, as individuals and as an organization, we must be continually improving. NSA provides a wide variety of opportunities to do exactly that. From conferences to labs, the themes and the content may vary, but the goal is always the same: to learn, grow, and share.

And the learning doesn’t all happen in sessions. In fact, a significant portion of it takes place away from the breakout rooms – in the hallways, sitting next to you at lunch or standing beside you at an evening reception.

Dan’s philosophy can be summarized by the title of his book, Off Balance On Purpose.

Also, we should go beyond the pursuit of “success” and enhance our life experiences and professional endeavors with purposeful, positive contributions.
