My presentation is scheduled for a time when we will not be in attendance. Can we change the day and time?
Because of the complex nature of assigning presentation times, once you have been assigned, there is very limited opportunity to change the day and time. The Committee works hard to assure that every presenter’s needs are met. If you know in advance that you are unable to present on a certain day, please let the Program Chair know as soon as possible. If there is a last minute change that must be made, the Program Committee will do their best to make any reasonable accommodation.

What are the different session formats?

There are 2 types of sessions this year:

Concurrent Sessions: 60-minute sessions that are directly related to the conference theme and the Learning Priorities of the association.

Roundtable Sessions: 60-minute pre-planned discussions to share best practices, present questions, and confer with colleagues on a specific topic.
