Conference Presentations

We’ve created this page to streamline the sharing of PPTs, notes, and other conference presentation materials.

This year’s sessions are listed below in alphabetical order. If a title is missing, it’s probably because the presenter has decided not to share their material in this way, or has yet to send it.
