  • Warm-up Days May 20 - 24 (Free to All): Each day there are variety of meetings scheduled, including three opportunities to participate in Conversations Matter, special product presentations for Kuder and AVID Adventures, committee meetings, country/regional meetings, and conference website tours.
  • Full Conference Days May 25, 27, and 29 (registration required): Presentations are scheduled for 3 hours each day.
  • Professional Development Institutes May 26/May 28 (Full): A Professional Development Institute is an interactive 3-hour workshop that allow you to dig into a topic and really learn it.  These PDIs are full, so no new registrations are allowed now.
  • Recorded Presentations Days: May 30 to June 29:  All of the presentations given during the conference will be recorded.  You have one month to use the conference website to view the presentations you missed.

Notice that some events are free to all.  Everyone is welcome to attend on days May 19 through May 24 without paying a fee – but you need to register here to get into the conference website.  Conference registration is still open and covers May 25, May 27, and May 29.  We are providing a day off between conference days so you can catch up with your life.  Please see the Conference Program for descriptions of the Keynotes and Presentations.

Don’t forget the Contests.  The contests provide a great way to get to know other attendees.  Please participate – and make the conference more enjoyable for yourself and others.

See you there!!!
