Concurrent sessions will be set up in classroom and theater style. If you would like a different session set up style, it needs to be requested. Please let us know who will be responsible for passing out and collecting evaluations, and making sure attendees complete the sign in sheet. We also will need to know who will keep you on time in your presentation. This may be you or a colleague that will attend with you. We will select proposed sessions based on the information that you want to cover and the content of the presentation.
