No virtual event can fully replicate the experience of sitting around a table with our colleagues, catching someone in the hallway, or grabbing a drink after we wrap up for the evening. However, we have tried to create an online event that allows for as much engagement and connection as possible, while also addressing some priority issues members identified in the survey we sent a couple months ago. We hope both new and returning members will leave with deeper relationships and greater resources for navigating these challenging times. All Times Listed are Eastern Time
