Conference Flow

Because the Conference comes during a busy time, organizers have set up the agenda so that national speakers' presentations are short (~15 minutes/speaker; ~10 minutes of Q&A) and so the agenda is broken into three distinct "modules" so that you can come and go as needed. 5 minute breaks are built into the end of each hour.


About the Networking Session

You must register for the Networking Session by 5 pm CT on May 6, 2022. Networking participants will receive a tip sheet, participant bios, login details and more between May 6-May 8, 2022.
