Look for the networking opportunity icon.

Texas Shoot-Out

The Texas Shoot-Out on Tuesday is a popular networking event with bowling, games, and a dinner buffet.  Even if you don’t bowl, it is a great opportunity to network and have fun.  This event is free to all registrants and their guests and include dinner.  If you plan to attend, please be sure to mark it on your registration form so that we may plan for your participation.

Wednesday Networking Reception

Join us and our sponsors for a drink and appetizers.  Then go enjoy the rest of the night at this fabulous resort.

BOAT’s annual golf outing will be held on Friday morning of the conference at one of the two golf courses at La Cantera.  The per person fee for the golf outing is $50, which includes lunch, range balls, and prize drawings. More information will be posted at a later date.

Other Networking Opportunities

There are plenty of opportunities for you to connect with colleagues, sponsors and exhibitors!

Self parking is complimentary..  Valet parking is also available.


The conference sessions have been submitted for ICC Preferred Provider CEU’s.  We will post here when official approval is received.
