Education and networking
Saturday, August 27, was dedicated to education. This year’s Advanced Education Conference Program included four tracks: Business Solutions, Skin Science, Trends and Wellness. Attendees learned about a variety of topics from some of the masters of the industry, including everything from marketing to social media to inflammation of the skin to becoming organic-savvy.

Many sessions, including “Risky Business: Take Simple Precautions to Keep Your Business Safe” presented by Jesse Cormier of Associated Skin Care Professionals (ASCP), inspired attendees to take immediate action when they returned to their facility. “This was fantastic information for professionals as well as spa managers such as myself to help employees know what to do to protect themselves,” said Jennifer LaCroix of Spaaah Shop & Day Spa in Durango, Colorado. “I will address all of these issues with our staff, including increasing awareness of precautions and intake forms. Great session!”
