Connecting With Your Peers
This event has been designed with the help of a Community Advisory Group of your peers. Ensuring the safety of our community and staff is a top priority, therefore we will cap the number of in-person attendees to maintain a safe, socially-distanced event.
We hope you will join us for a day and a half of discussion, learning from your peer community, and social networking time. The fee for this in-person event is $399. Register now!
