Upon registration, each registrant will receive a link to the Conference Attendee Survey in your confirmation email from . If you did not receive a confirmation email, please check your spam folder. Every attendee must fill out the survey form so we can provide you with the best experience possible. This will help us plan your meals and any accessibility needs. 

Your registration confirmation email will also include a link for hotel booking and a food menu for the day. 

We have some ability to adjust meals based on individuals’ dietary restrictions so it is crucial for you to complete the survey if this applies to you. If you are unsure about the alignment of the menu with your dietary needs, we encourage you to pack your own snacks and meals to bring to the conference.  

Depending on need, we may send out a survey closer to the conference to gauge interest in session topics and post-conference happy hour. Attendance to the happy hour network is free for conference attendees. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.

Sustainability & Accessibility Matter To Us

The full program for the event will be provided digitally (accessible by QR code) in an effort to promote sustainability and reduce paper waste, which aligns with our IDEA(s) values.  A printed agenda will be available but will not contain all session information. We will only print the number of paper materials as determined in the attendee survey.  

We have  ASL Interpretation or Spanish Language services  available upon request and have ensured table clearance at the conference is 28 inches, and the distance between tables and booths are at least 3 feet to accommodate any wheelchairs or mobility devices.  

Gender neutral bathrooms, as well as a pop-up lactation and prayer room, will be available per request. 

We want you to enjoy this conference worry-free. If you have additional special accommodations, please let us know by indicating such in your attendee survey.
