Choose your path!
Each day of the seminar, you have the opportunity to choose your path! Although we offer sessions all day long, you will NOT be on a computer from 9:00 A.M.. to 8:00 P.M. CDT. Mandatory meetings will take up 4-6 hours of your day. The rest of the time is still yours! Be sure to take note of which sessions are marked “mandatory/required” and which ones are “elective”. The elective sessions are where you can choose what you will get out of the seminar!
To help you set your agenda, we will provide a few suggestions for designing your path forward each day. We hope that you will find this helpful.
- Mandatory/Required: Sessions marked as “mandatory” or “required” are essential parts of your experience and you must attend these sessions, if you are able. We will be recording our keynote speakers, breakout speakers and other sessions, so if you miss a mandatory or required session, be sure to check back afterwards for the video recording! If you anticipate a scheduling conflict with a mandatory or required session, please inform your assigned counselor/facilitator before the start of the session.
- Elective: Sessions marked as “elective” are also essential, but you have a choice to make. You are still expected to attend these sessions, but you get to choose which part of the session you participate in.
