MLC CONNECT 2019 – CREATIVE TRACKS

In 2019 you’ll see a diverse stage that is sure to change the way you think about what you do, engage with you and cover valuable conversations around discipline-specific pain points and give you the secret sauce to take back to your organization or institute and do big things.

HOW & WHEN DO I CHOOSE MY TRACK?

  • READ THE DESCRIPTIONS // Each session will have a brief description, located inside the conference program that you will receive at registration check-in, plus the descriptions will be physically posted throughout

  • MAKE THE CALL // You can decide which session to attend the morning of, or minutes before. You also have the ability to quietly pop-in & out during the session - if you’re not sure, please respectfully sit towards the back, thanks!
