Members can take advantage of one of six amazing pre-conferences and workshops available to members. The pre-conferences and workshops assembled by the presenters are timely, thoughtfully developed, informative, and connect beautifully to the conference theme.

 

Worth noting is that, where possible, I optimized the time schedule to allow members to register for more than one activity, in some instances, on Saturday, February 18, 2017.
