Interactive Breaks (in Zoom)
Breaks are scheduled over the course of the live synchronous sessions (April 15-17) for virtual socializing and collaboration, akin to the coffee breaks and receptions where so many connections are made each year. You can expect a combination of curated topics that connect to the educational program’s tracks, high-impact topics that are broadly applicable across the membership, and groups that form around non-work topics, such as personal hobbies (e.g., running). These interactive breaks are listed on the Live Synchronous Sessions webpage and in the Searchable Program.
