Instead of offering regional gatherings this year, we're hosting three virtual one-day summits as an opportunity to learn from experts and peers. Last year's spring virtual meetings were very highly rated and we anticipate that this year's will be even more valuable because they are tailored to specific job functions. Recordings of all sessions will be shared with those who register. The cost to participate in each is $35 for ReFrame members & $55 for non-members. Click the name of the summit for more details and to register. Scholarships are available. Email to request.
