“There is no better place to kick off my Fiala Fellowship project than at ICSC’s Next Generation National Conference where the future of the industry is present. We have much work to do. I am dedicated to the mission – in fact, I will be taking time while at the Next Gen Conference to meet with the leaders at Florida Memorial University,” Bolen said.

Bolen’s presentation will take place at 1:10 p.m. on Monday, July 27 at JW Marriott Marquis, in Miami. The three-day Next Generation National Conference begins July 26.
