Many of our patrons arrive at the conference on Saturday for better airfare and/or more relaxed travel. As a result, one of the most popular parts of the event has been our optional crash course program. These two-hour workshops are designed to jump-start your conference experience, offering primers on the fundamentals and on topics with which you might not be familiar or feel you might need a bit more grounding. These courses carry a modest extra fee; they are the only part of the curriculum that is not covered by your registration fee.

We will announce our three crash courses for 2020 soon after the new year; for reference here are the 2019 offerings, and they follow our established pattern: a workshop on presentation skills, another on presentation design, and one on an essential PowerPoint skill or technique.
