Guest blog post by Alyson Genovese, Twitter: @alysongenovese

I've got to admit, I love going to conferences. They're kind of romantic (no, not that way!) - I get to hang out with others who care about employee engagement and sustainability as much as I do, learn from the best and the brightest about new trends and successes in our field, and leave feeling inspired and ready to tackle the challenges facing our (somewhat mundane) everyday. 

Even those of you who are more pragmatic about conferences than I see the importance of attending a few of our industry’s key gathering opportunities to network, grow and “be seen.” So together, the team at Realized Worth and I, have culled through all the newsletters, blogs and press releases to offer you a quick list of 2012 conferences, listed below in chronological order.

Check out their individual web sites to see pricing, calls for presenters, lodging information and all the other pertinent details. See you there!
