How do we transform our profession?  Over the past three days, we’ve had a chance to connect with our peers and explore innovative ideas, now it’s time to bring everything together.  Join us at the capstone session that will give you a chance to make sense of it all.

Attend our facilitated panel discussion with four conference experts as they help you leverage your three days of ideas and discussion into key takeaways.  Capture groundbreaking ideas and check in with colleagues to form a professional group consensus about where to go from here.
