Hi, I have checked the NMBKA website and this one and neither states what hours the conference will be nor the schedule of events.  Is this available anywhere?  I can only come for one day and would like to be able to choose it based on the presentations.  Also, is there a cost involved? 

Comment by Michelle Poi on December 18, 2016 at 8:31pm

Could you tell me the time for Friday and Saturday?
