2 programs per week (tentatively on Saturdays); specific times and dates will be announced
No programs will be scheduled for Passover or Easter weekends
***We will try to schedule events throughout the day so that worldwide participation is possible during prime time in various time zones.
We are trying to accommodate both speakers and audience members in as diverse and inclusive a schedule as possible.
***Speakers are reminded some programs will be better attended than others.
As is true with a face to face convention, we have no way to guarantee how many attendees to expect at each individual program.
We will send reminders for each Saturday program on Fridays.
All sessions will use the Zoom online platform.
