2022 Conference

We’re Pleased to Announce That Annual Review is Back – March 3, 2022!

Annual Review is Centre Law & Consulting’s flagship conference. Every year contract managers, procurement professionals, counsel and business executives from across the country come together to learn about the latest developments in the ever-changing field of government contracting. From start to finish this is a day full of engaging speakers, insightful topics and incredible networking opportunities.

IN-PERSON EVENT UPDATE: Effective 01/31/22

In light of the ever changing events and guidelines for in-person gatherings, with a heavy heart, we have made the decision to have the event held in a virtually only format this year. We are following suit with many conferences who are faced with the same dilemma. The event will still be the entire day, same agenda, speaking topics and energy! If you have already purchased an in-person event, please check the email that you used to register for information regarding virtual price adjustments and refunds.
