Pre-Conference Courses & Enhancement Workshops

Pre-Conference Courses & Conference Enhancement Workshops

If you're looking for in-depth, targeted professional development options, you can join one of the Pre-Conference Courses or add one or both of the Conference Enhancement Workshops to your registration for maximum education opportunities. The Pre-Conference Courses run concurrently with the conference program and allow for breaks from your classes to join General Sessions and have some time on the show floor, however, it is a separate program that enables participants to earn their CAPP designation.  Conference Enhancement Workshops are half-day workshops available on Sunday, June 3 to enhance the overall conference agenda.

= additional fees and/or separate registration required. In order to ensure maximum benefit for all participants, all courses are limited to 30 people or less.
