The Conclave Opens Today
July 16, 2009 at 5:09 AM (PT)
TODAY (7/16) marks the opening of THE CONCLAVE convention in MINNEAPOLIS. Born as “THE UPPER MIDWEST COMMUNICATIONS CONCLAVE”, the organization was founded in 1976 as a regional gathering of communications professionals. It was incorporated as a 501c-3 non-profit entity in 1985. Throughout the years, THE CONCLAVE’s yearly Learning Conference has grown to attract many from beyond its original MIDWEST boundaries, and as such, is now known simply as THE CONCLAVE.
