Do you need SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS? Apply here FIRST.

Will there be Zoom access? While we hope to see you in person at our conference, where networking and friendship are key components, we realize not everyone can make the trip. These past years of Zoom have shown that we can offer some of the conference virtually; therefore, we will provide a limited Zoom Only option for those who really must stay home. Zoom Only participants will have access to a few selected classes, along with a chance to view the opening, closing and Hall of Fame ceremonies. Full details TBA.
