Since the coronavirus pandemic has drastically changed the way all of us now function, we’re happy to announce that we’ve restructured our 2020 annual conference as a series of online convenings. These events will feature purposefully selected presentations originally planned for our annual onsite conference.

In these uncertain times, it’s more important than ever to retain a sense of engagement and professional learning with colleagues. While showing up physically at a conference, workshop, or other face-to-face meetings might not currently be possible, below are ways to network and engage in professional learning.
