EVENT
HIGHLIGHTS

Attendees spend time together to learn and engage with like-minded professionals as a large group and small, focused workgroups, hear from special guest speakers, networking activities, and more.

The 'Top Tip Takeaway' sessions wrap up each day providing time to share the tips you've learned that you'll take back to your organization. This is a discussion you don't want to miss as you can gain additional ideas you may have missed during the event!
