Southern District Virtual Conference

The Southern District is excited to present our first ever virtual conference! The virtual conference will provide you access to presentations in a webinar format from talented professionals all across our region from the comfort of your own office. We are proud that this virtual format has allowed us to reduce your registration and travel costs (the early bird registration fee is 38% lower this year!). Through our special group registration rates (see below) we hope to allow more access to the conference than ever before across the Southern District!

We look forward to seeing you at the conference and invite you to review conference details below.

The Virtual Conference will take place Friday, March 6, 2020 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM Pacific Standard Time. You will be able to access it from anywhere with an internet connection.
