Schedule-at-a-Glance

We’re excited to provide this general overview of the Convention Schedule.  This year’s schedule offers many choices for Convention attendees while also keeping in mind screen fatigue and time zones.  As planning continues, we will update this site with more detailed information.  Stay tuned!

Session Blocks for Educational Sessions, Keynotes & Activities

Generally, each Program Day will consist of 5 program blocks, each offering a variety of presentation types.  

Pre-Convention Workshops will be held March 1-5 and will have various time blocks.  There will also be opportunities for New Attendee Orientation and to learn more about navigating the Convention platform.

The main Convention Programs will occur March 8 – 17.  Program Days will primarily be Mondays and Tuesdays.  We will offer holistic Wellness opportunities (networking, caucusing, career development, etc.) on Wednesdays.  Thursdays and Fridays will be for entity and other special meetings.
