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.
