This year’s keynote is presented by members of Project Spectrum. As a follow-up to their asynchronous videos and papers, the presenters will facilitate a synchronous virtual discussion/Q&A on Sunday, August 9th, from 2-3pm EDT. Instructions for accessing this discussion are forthcoming and will be posted here. Other conference sessions will not include synchronous Q&A with presenters. Instead, you are encouraged to share feedback and questions directly with presenters using the contact information they have provided in their materials.
A tremendous thank you to the many members of the MTSNYS community who made this virtual conference possible. The conference will be available through September 30th. If you have any difficulties with access, please contact Ben Baker, MTSNYS Treasurer, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy!
