    We're hoping to convene at the Redskins training headquarters in Ashburn on Friday, Sept. 28 with a panel discussion on getting and keeping a seat at the table, and another on when the public loses respect for your organization. It'll be a half-day event ending with lunch and prizes by 1 p.m. More information to come!
