Pre-Conference Activities

Enhance your conference experience—and make the most of your professional development budget—by attending one or more courses before the conference—and return to work with new knowledge and skills that you can put to use right away….

Class size is limited to ensure interaction between the instructor(s) and participants. Pre-conference course fees are in addition to conference fees. See the conference schedule for more information. You do not need to attend the joint annual meeting in order to attend pre-conference course.
