Thanks to a generous gift from Mark and Kathy Helge, almost the entire conference will be both live-streamed and recorded—including all of the workshops and group learning events. If you register to attend virtually, you can attend when you are able. Afterwards you’ll have access to all of the recordings.

The virtual conference registration fee is non-refundable as participants will have the option to livestream and have access to all event recordings throughout the remainder of the year.
