Conference Update!

This email went out to all registered participants today.  If you registered but did not get the email, you may want to reregister, a few of the email addresses were entered incorrectly in the registration form.

UPDATES!

1)  The final schedule of sessions is posted.  We have some excellent workshop and breakout session choices (45 this year!).  While you DO NOT need to sign up in advance for any session or workshop, you might want to mark your calendar for the ones you really would like to attend.  Please note that there is a limit of 100 participants per session (this is usually not an issue) so you are welcome to login up to 20 minutes prior to the start time of the session to make sure you have your sport reserved.
