Join us for this year's virtual conference! Learn practical tips voted on by your peers!

We will be using a virtual platform called Pheedloop — this way all of your learning needs, live streams, networking, presentation handouts/resources, and post event recordings will be all in one place! Also we will have a virtual exhibit space for you to visit before we start, during the breaks, and during a  dedicated time when the conference ends at 2-3pm PST.
