One of the most popular parts of the conference continues to be our optional crash course program. These two-hour workshops take place on Sunday and 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.
You can add one, two, or all three of these courses during registration. To add any of them to an existing registration, return to the registration page, enter only the required contact information (name and email), and choose Other at Main Conference. Of if you prefer, just email us and we’ll take care of it for you.
These were the courses that we had prepared for the 2020 conference before going virtual and foregoing our Sunday programming. While tentative at this point, it is likely that we will offer them for 2021.
