We are focused on service to our communities especially in times of great need. LNVB is the product of Matthew Carmichael and Anita Ahuja. The original concept has held true over the last four year and is the reason our conference series has grown in attendance every year by maintaining the following philosophy:
We decided early on that we have all attended those conferences where you sit and look at your watch and by the last day and last presentation most people have left for home. Not ours. We stay to the very end because of the above recipe. Lastly, our sole focus is finding ways to best serve our communities during times of tragedy and our success is based on our ability to work and learn form one another.
We have been exceptionally fortunate to have the support of OVC, CALVCB, UC Davis, University of Oregon, and our many speakers who have joined us throughout the years. Many people volunteering many hours has now turned into something much greater than a conference.
