About the Conference

This year’s conference is Wednesday and Thursday, September 21 and 22, 2022, and sure to be one you won’t want to miss! Along with a slate of several relevant presentations, you can look forward to “mousetraps and gadgets” and roundtable discussions. Attendees will have ample time to meet with their peers and many exhibitors.
