April 18, 2013, Barcelona, Spain

HTFN  members were indeed Combining their Global forces in Barcelona with one of the largest attendance ever gathering at the W Hotel in Barcelona for the 29th Annual Worldwide Conference. The opening ceremony greeting by Angela Flynn, Chairman of the Board, kicked things off with an exciting teambuilding event as authentic Flamenco dancers exhibited their dance of Spain. Delegates presented their dance ability and competitive strength to work together to entertain the crowd.

The Annual Business meeting covered several topics including committee reports, options for a data exchange system, the new HTFN video in Spanish translation, and new member presentations. The three days following were filled with continuous networking with delegates intense in their meeting schedules and working together to formulate business. The closing awards dinner was with true Spanish culture including the Castellers as they built a human tower! The HTFN award winners, most selected by the Membership, were presented with celebration and speeches all around!
