About the conference

The conference begins on Sunday, June 18 with a Welcome Reception. If you arrive Saturday or early on Sunday morning, you may want to participate in the Annual Golf Outing or the Water For People Thornapple River Canoe Trip, both of which take place before the Welcome Reception on Sunday evening.

The conference continues from Monday through Wednesday with Technical Sessions.
