NSCA, a not-for-profit association representing the commercial low-voltage electronic systems industry, announced the speakers for the 22nd annual Business & Leadership Conference (BLC), to be held Feb. 26-28, 2020, at the Four Seasons Resort and Club in Irving, Texas.

NSCA’s BLC is a platform for executive-level education and networking. The event brings hundreds of executives together annually to share stories, learn from other leaders and hear about new ways to embrace technology and motivate employees.

First-time BLC attendees may apply for a Randy Vaughan Founder’s Award to receive free registration. To qualify, applicants must be in a management or decision-making role at a commercial integration firm. Applications are available at www.nsca.org/awards and due by Dec. 1, 2019.

BLC 2020 keynotes include:

  • The Future of Work: How Will Humans Fit In? by Geoff Colvin
  • What to Do When There’s Too Much to Do by Laura Stack

Attendees are also encouraged to register for the annual NSCA Education Foundation Industry Charity Golf Outing at the TPC Four Seasons Las Colinas on Feb. 26.
