Ever wish there were a way for you to share your voice and experience at a SNAG conference? This is your chance!
In response to feedback from last year’s conference, the Conference Program Committee has included a forum for every conference participant to chime in with their own experience on the topic(s) of their choice.
Each topic-driven presentation trio will be followed directly by a Community Conversation session hosted by the presenter. These focused breakout sessions are meant to give time and space to identify challenges and solutions for the issues currently facing the field. You are invited to share your thoughts and experiences, or just come listen at any or all of these topical breakout sessions.
And the conversation doesn’t stop there! The main points that arise during each Community Conversation will be summarized in a brief recap, presented during the Annual Membership Meeting on Saturday, May 23. Our goal is to distill what we discover during the conference into the core issues that will inform us as we shape the future of SNAG and the industry together.
