Annual Convention

Deep-Dive Sessions

Attending a Deep-Dive session gives you the chance to spend four hours intensively focused on one specific topic. The sessions, presented by nationally known speakers, are structured to include content that is research-based, share best practices, and provide proven “how to” strategies. All sessions will include time for Q & A.

Deep-Dive Sessions are NOT included in your conference registration, they are an Add-On.  You may however, register to attend ONLY a Deep-Dive Session, but will not have access to all the rest of the convention happenings.  Early Bird pricing is $79 per person.

Deep-Dive Session handouts are issued only to the person registered for the session.  Space may be limited in some sessions, so register early. On-site registration cannot be guaranteed.
