Zoom Events and Webinars

Schedule at a Glance

This year we are using the Zoom Events Platform which allows registered folks to enter the Event Lobby early and view the three-day schedule, create your itinerary, bookmark favorite sessions, personalize your profile etc..  For this reason and others we're not posting as detailed of a schedule to the website as we did last year.  Doing so creates a lot of work for the committee and leaves room for error due to the constant updates and changes. Please follow the participant instructions above to create your agenda for the conference
