registration brochure SPECIAL NOTICE - NETWORKING EVENING & DINNER AT THE FLORIDA AQUARIUM: Conference attendees will have the option to join in this activity but must register and pay for it prior to the conference. Enjoy a casual dinner before touring the exhibits of this popular Florida destination. Transportation will be provided. To help keep conference registration fees down, this event is not included in your full conference registration fee. It costs $25 to attend if you register by April 3; $35 if you register between April 4 - May 14. Please note, the aquarium requires preregistration with a strict cut-off date and therefore, we will NOT have tickets available for purchase at the conference, so be sure to register for this fun event well in advance on your conference registration form! At last year's conference many attendees decided to go to the special event at the last minute and were able to, but this is not an option this year. Don't be disappointed - register early! 

PROGRAM SUMMARYWe have a preliminary list of the workshops and presentations that will be featured in Tampa. There will be minor adjustments to the program as we move forward and we will update this document as changes come in, so it's important to check out ALL of the track listings as the content is varied.
