PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOPS - August 5, 2019

Please note, the Workshops are NOT “sit back and just listen” sessions. You will be asked to participate in the group exercises, so please be prepared to put your “IA thinking hat” on when attending these sessions. Workshop registrations will be on a first come first serve basis. If you do not pre-register for your Workshop, unfortunately we’ll have to assign seating based upon demand and availability.
