Virtual Education Opportunities for Fall 2020

This summer, we’ve seen a number of the events we typically participate in transition to virtual events. While it’s unfortunate that we aren’t able to meet together in person, these opportunities have the advantage of being more economical with the costs of travel and lodging being removed!
