A Few Days at The Beach....


During the days following Memorial Day more than 250 industry professionals gathered once again at the Montage in Laguna Beach for the third annual NIA Spring meeting. Collectively we represented more than 110 companies from every corner of the industry.

This year's meeting hosted 8 sessions with industry experts presenting timely information on a wide variety of topics that impact us all and included our first ever appearance by US Senator Tim Scott, and by FDA’s Director of Dietary Supplements, Daniel Fabricant Ph.D.

We also enjoyed a round of golf on the amazingly beautiful Talega Golf course, an early morning run/walk along the beach, another successful whale watching trip, bocce ball and s’mores by the campfire along with The Eagle’s  tunes  and the constant sound of waves in the background. The desserts and nightcaps reception was packed, and at our final breakfast on the lawn overlooking the Pacific, we were already planning what we were going to do next year.

A big thank you goes to the volunteers who helped put it all together especially to this year’s chair Jim Barton of Herbalife. There are countless hours, emails, phone calls, and more that go into an event like this. We think you’ll agree it was worth the effort.

Plan now for our fall meeting held on Tuesday, October 29, at the Los Angeles Athletic Club. Golf will be on Monday afternoon…see the registration forms to sign up.
Registration is open. Move quickly since this particular event does have a limited number of seats.

And as for next Spring....we’ll be seeing you at Ojai!
