    - Rosalyn M., Wisconsin, Member since 2008


    Industry Supported and Sponsored Events

    The cost of industry-supported and sponsored (IS) events with food service presented at the 2024 AANP National Conference is not included in the conference registration fees.

Due to their educational focus and guideline requirements, attendance is restricted to conference registrants only. To expedite the admittance of attendees into these events, registration will occur onsite at the entrance of each scheduled event on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no preregistration.

    “Coming to the conference, we get to meet people from all over the country and even the world — making those connections, hearing what other practitioners are doing ... and being successful at it, that helps to encourage you.”

    - Sherri G., TX, Member since 1999


  • Keynote Speaker

    Opening General Session Keynote Speaker

    Dominique Dawes

    Dominique Dawes

    You may have seen Dominique Dawes breaking records as a gold-medal-winning gymnast and part of the 1996 Summer Olympics “Magnificent Seven” squad. Today, Dawes is a business owner, author and motivational speaker. The Olympian shares her experience of setbacks and success to audiences around the globe — reminding everyone that defeat should never define you.

    Born in Silver Spring, Maryland, Dawes began training in gymnastics at the age of six. She started competing at nine, traveling the world and showcasing her skills on the balance beam and in floor exercise. Competing in the Olympics, Dawes made history as the first African American gymnast to win an individual medal and as the only female U.S. gymnast to be a part of three Olympic medal-winning gymnastic teams.

    Along the way, she encountered her share of adversity, including the occasional difficult defeat on the gymnastics floor and having to compete with some combination of tendinitis and Osgood-Schlatter disease. In her post-Olympics career as a motivational speaker, entrepreneur, coach and advocate for healthy lifestyles and autism awareness, Dawes expands on the public victories and personal challenges she has experienced and challenges audiences to succeed on their own terms.
