Sessions are a great way to continue education and network with other attendees.

While every event site differs, we hope to guide you through what you can expect on the Sessions page or visit our FAQ's*.

  1. Begin by selecting Sessions, typically* located within My Planner
    • This page may* also be available on the event site under the Conference section.

  3. If you do log in, the system will keep a permanent record of the sessions you saved and will allow you to access your My Sessions tab from any other device you log in to.
