New Ideas Annual Conference

October 6-8, 2020

Due to the conditions in the state of Texas, our board has made the difficult decision to move the 2020 New Ideas Conference completely virtual this fall.

We are turning our attention to the “new” New Ideas so that we can deliver an experience that offers additional education hours and sessions, allows you to still connect with your peers, and unique opportunities to engage with our sponsors and supporters. Knowing New Ideas is not just about education but about being with each other, we will capture that same spirit in our virtual offering.

Online registration is now closed. Please email Catherine Lapoint if you would like to sign up.
