The internet has taken our vast world and made it much smaller.  I appreciate that friends can reside great distances away, but through social media we are able to stay current and in contact.  It’s almost as good as being there….almost!

Our National Training Seminar launches officially on Monday, the 27th.  We have already started sharing via our hashtags on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.  To get in the spirit of NTS check out these hashtags:

  • #MCECNTS2016
  • #TomorrowsTrailblazers
  • #MCECS2SSummit


And if you can’t make it this year, no worries.  Follow along on our pages so you can feel a part of NTS and see what’s trending.

The MCEC National Training Seminar is our Super Bowl.  We work throughout the year planning the NTS to bring a convergence of ambitious ideas, exceptional speakers, and valuable trainings all in one venue.

Our year-long planning process comes complete with someone appointed as “Day-Counter” who will keep us apprised of how many days until NTS.  As the number gets smaller and the date grows closer, the amused laughter will turn to groans and finally, sharp intakes of breath.  We take this seriously and want to deliver the very best event possible!  As soon as NTS 2016 wraps up, the dust will settle a bit, and then we’ll begin planning for 2017. 

If you’ve been on the fence and haven’t yet reserved your place, there is still time to register and attend.  The following links will direct you to our:


As you enjoy NTS, please use our hashtags to share your favorite experiences.  We love to know what our guests enjoy and this will allow you to connect with other attendees.

Just for fun, the following are some photos from years past.  The spirit of fun and celebration is easy to see.
