2023 Annual Conference Virtual Option

An abbreviated conference experience for those who can't attend in person.

Thursday, February 23, 2023
8:00 AM (CST)
to Friday, February 24, 2023 at 12:00 PM (CST)

We're trying something new this year! To make our conference more accessible to those who don't typically attend our in person events, we have a select track of six presentations that we are offering in a Hybrid Track. While you won't get the "Full Conference Experience" we hope this selection will help empower you to do more with your programs. 

Fees for the virtual option are:
Member: $150
Non-member: $225

Keep in mind that an individual membership is $65*. (Student membership is free!) It will be cheaper to become a member and then register than it will be to attend as a non-member.
*New member discounts available.
