Logistical Information


Please email an electronic version of your slides and handouts to MaryAnn Mlekush, conference manager, at by Monday, May 9, 2016. We will be posting them to our mobile conference app. 

There are no reservations for seating in the sessions, so we have no way of knowing of how many people will be in your session. Please bring along at least 75 paper copies of handouts for your session attendees. Many attendees will prefer the electronic version of the handouts, so it is important that you get the electronic documents to us in a timely manner, preferably before the conference starts.
