The Winter CPE Cluster is as much about the location as it is about the information. The lineup includes award-winning instructors who have surveyed the landscape and extracted nuggets of information that you need to know, making it worth its weight in gold. And when you’re not in session, the Golden Nugget offers a 24-karat resort experience, including live entertainment, fine dining, golf and spa services and, of course, a full-service casino. It’s a golden opportunity to get up to date on top, tough issues and have a little fun at the same time.
