The call for poster sessions is now open!

The conference theme is Collaborate, Innovate, Celebrate. We're looking for programs that are aligned with it and preference will be given to proposals that complement the theme. 

This will be a dynamic conference with exciting keynote speakers, a reception at the newly renovated Forsyth County Public Library and a rich array of exhibitors.

The call will remain open until July 17th.
