WHERE WE'VE BEEN:


August 11 & 12, 2021

Virtual Event

Out of an abundance of caution, we chose to host this event in a virtual format this year.  This decision certainly did not affect the quality of our speakers or the diversity of topics.  We offered several types of sessions during the event:     

  • Keynote Sessions are one-hour sessions with a featured speaker
  • Breakout Sessions are one-hour sessions covering a wide variety of topics
  • Roundtable Discussions. In these one-hour sessions, attendees had the opportunity to share and hear about strategies, best practices, ideas, and recommendations around a single area of focus.
  • Deep Dive Sessions are three hours in length and allow subject matter experts to provide in-depth training and information.
