Join us as we return to the Providence, Rhode Island area for a fun-filled event as we will recall the divinely decadent 1980s with a Lifestyles of the Rich and Fabulous weekend!
The convention commences with registration at 11 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 20 followed by afternoon speakers and adjourns at noon on Sunday, Oct. 22 after our morning educational workshops. However, we have special Thursday afternoon and evening activities in the works, so you may want to consider arriving early. We will post more news about pre-convention activities as our planning continues.
Our attendees will also enjoy meals together during the convention weekend; our open-to-the-public Saturday Show and Sale; and a fun-filled celebration Saturday evening including the presentation of the 2017 CJCI Achievement Award.
