2020 Education Summit

December 6-8, 2020
The Foundry Hotel
Asheville, NC

SITE Southeast invites you to join us Live for the Education Summit in Asheville, North Carolina!

I could never had imagined that when I selected the theme song for the year “Road Less Traveled” that our industry would actually take the “Road Less Traveled”. As we put 2020 in our rear view and move forward climbing new heights in 2021, I would like to personally invite you to SITE Southeast Education Summit.

We are stronger together! Yes there will be challenges ahead that we will encounter however if you are willing to adapt to the new norm we can rebuild and “Conquer New Heights”.

Consider this year’s summit a family reunion. We will focus on how we can work together to overcome the challenges we will face, providing you with the knowledge and tools to navigate our industry moving forward. Join us and our industry partners as we “Navigate the Summit” together. SITE SE, 8 States Strong!

Your President,
Cathy Jones
