Conference Handouts



Please print or upload the handouts for the sessions you are attending.  Remember you can always print in black ink and can set your printer to print more than one slide per page.  If you don't see the handout you need that is because we haven't received it from the speaker yet.  We will continue to add handouts as we receive them from speakers.
