2021 Charleston Preconferences and Seminars
There are two attendance options: Virtual preconferences will be held online using Zoom during the month of October. In-Person preconferences will be held in Charleston on Tuesday, November 2.
The Charleston Conference traditionally hosts preconference workshops and seminars on the days immediately preceding the main conference. This year, since we’re using a hybrid model for the conference, we have both in person and virtual options for the preconferences as well. We’ve spread the virtual sessions out during the month of October to avoid scheduling burnout during the week of the conference. Each session is jam-packed with hands-on activity and breakout discussions for the attendees, and will include several breaks. These are intended to be active learning sessions, not just another webinar to sit through. We have sessions on a wide range of topics – see the links below for more details! The in-person sessions will be scheduled in Charleston during the week of the conference.
$95 Full Day Sessions
$50 Half Day Sessions
$200 Full Day Sessions
$125 Half Day Sessions
