OAC Releases Pricing Information, Registration Date Opening and Theme
for the 2014 Your Weight Matters National Convention

Tampa, Fla. – Today, the OAC released new and exciting information on its 3rd Annual National Convention, including registration pricing details, the official opening date of registration, this year’s Convention theme and much more! This year’s Convention, Together We S.H.I.N.E. (Support, Health, Inspiration, Networking and Education), is set for September 25-28 in Orlando, Fla. And will offer outstanding education and one-of-a-kind experiences that attendees can only expect from the Your Weight Matters National Convention.

Registration for YWM2014 will open on April 7, offering a variety of affordable options that start at just $30/day for One-day Registrations, and just $95 for the Full Convention Package. “The education presented at Convention is invaluable, and we know that the cost of registration is important to all attendees. Therefore, we’ve kept the cost of registration the same low price as last year in order to allow all those interested to attend,” said Joe Nadglowski, OAC President and CEO.

In its third year of existence, the 2014 Your Weight Matters National Convention is expected to set record numbers, with an expected attendance of more than 500 attendees from all over the country. With the most up-to-date topics on weight, health, nutrition, exercise, weight bias, advocacy and more led by leaders in the healthcare field, the Your Weight Matters Convention has quickly risen as the premier event for joining together individuals from across the country to learn evidence-based strategies for weight management.

“OAC’s Convention has continually grown not only in attendance, but also in what it has to offer attendees. Having the privilege of attending the past two Conventions, I can tell you that this year is going to be amazing and offer all those in attendance the latest information on weight and health, the opportunity to connect with one another and much more,” said Ted Kyle, RPh, MBA, OAC Chairman.

The Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld, set in the nation’s number one tourist destination (Orlando, Fla.), will play home to YWM2014 and offer attendees luxurious accommodations located within minutes from all Orlando area attractions. “Orlando is the perfect family-friendly location for YWM2014, and we encourage attendees to bring their families, make a vacation out of this year’s meeting destination and join us as we learn that together – we all shine,” said Amber Huett-Garcia, BS, MPA, Convention Committee Chair.
