Annual Conference

Thanks to everyone who attended the April 2 virtual conference.  We had 92 people attend at least part of the day!  Along with the schedule, you'll find the powerpoint slides from each of our presenters, the COVID-19 resources that were shared, updated information from Theresa Klamen, and the script for Ben Marshall's song.

Thank you to everyone who presented- Theresa, Juan, Angela, Marianne, Eko, Don, Jordan, Annalisa, Lebo, Nick, Caitlyn, Phil, Vivien, Scott, Dan, Ben, Katelynn, Elizabeth, Stephanie, and Julie!  We definitely appreciate all the time and effort you spent preparing for the conference and your flexibility switching gears for a virtual conference.  And thanks to everyone who was working to plan the Wisconsin conference and the hands on/ discussion activities there- Shawn, Heidi, Don, Phil, Annalisa, Kristin, and Lisa.
