Monday & Tuesday Breakouts

65th Annual State Conference


Monday and Tuesday will feature over 40 one-hour breakout sessions in seven different tracks. Each session will dive deep into an assessment topic that would typically be too specialized for a traditional two-day course. We have collaborated with a knowledgeable group of industry professionals to put together a lineup of speakers and session topics that will be useful and relevant to you in your career.

**Attendees will receive 15 hours of CE for attending Monday’s keynote and the Monday/Tuesday breakout sessions.
