"...Where paths that have an affinity for each other intersect, the whole world looks like home..." Herman Hesse


In 2015 we gathered in America's heartland -- Kansas City, MO, the city of NSN's new home – for our first hometown conference! Where our paths cross, we find and celebrate common ground; we examine our options and choose the next steps of our journey. Pathways provide opportunities to view new horizons and make new discoveries, explore new perspectives and make new connections…and find our way home.
