BREAKOUT SESSSIONS

WHAT IS A BREAKOUT SESSION?

This is our way of having amazing knowledgeable people share their information and personal experiences with all of you!  

Here's how it'll work:  Each breakout session consists of a new topic with a new group of "experts."  They'll start out by telling everyone who they are and what they do.  Then we open it up to discussion.  There will be a moderator to make sure things stay on topic (as much as possible).  YOU determine what you get out of these discussions.

This is not only an opportunity to learn, but to also have a great time and meet some amazing people in our community!

Check out the schedule and topics below.
