    1. Unfortunately these will not be online for virtual access, but we have writers attending the conference. They will be writing articles for all the sessions they attend, so stay tuned!

      1. Looking at the few options archived available is scanty to say the least Actually attending this conference (I was able to do so years ago) is not an option for me. It would be so helpful if more information was available. At least unless I missed something, there is very little archived available.

        1. Carol, I totally hear you. Attending in person is always so much better! Unfortunately, we can’t record anything from the conference but we just finished publishing all the summaries if you would like to take a look by clicking here. I hope you are able to learn something fun or interesting from these.
