Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

This year, since we are unable to gather at Blue Mountain Resort for our Symposium, we are holding a one day event on Friday, April 9, 2021, as a virtual symposium. We have selected the sessions that will be held and are seeking sponsorship for the event. We have opted not to charge for the sessions.

We will provide everyone with one link to register for the full day. You can drop in for any of the sessions or stay for the whole day. You will be able to link up with the sponsors and sit at their table, or reachout to other attendees and invite them to join you at a table.

These are the one hour sessions we are offering throughout the day (in no particluar order):
