Conference Program

This year our conference theme "Dare to Explore and Discover" has led us to design powerful, transformative programs to inform your independent education career. You'll find events that inspire across a variety of subjects and formats. You can also learn more about our programming in the Workshops and Speakers section of this site.  You can also view and download the Conference Preview.
