The 2020 NBOA Annual Meeting is less than a week away, February 23-26. More than 1,300 business officers, business office staff, heads of school and business partners will gather at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center and the co-conference hotel, Orlando World Center Marriott, for professional development sessions, networking and collegial exchange.
