Workshop Information

Max 45 characters to fit conference brochure please.



NOTE: There are three possible format choices. You can use some or all of them, but they must total 100%.  

AV Requirements

NOTE: Please bring your own LCD projector if you need one. We will order and pay for the projection screen and computer cart. Request A/V equipment only if absolutely necessary as the hotel charges are prohibitively expensive. For instance, having the hotel provide an LCD projector costs $750/session and the screen an additional $400/session, plus set up charges and taxes. We appreciate your  understanding!


If you checked "Yes" and are bringing your own laptop and LCD projector, a screen and cart will be in the room scheduled for your session.

Once notified that your proposal is approved, please contact Karen Gadowsky, (, if you need to request additional A/V equipment.
