The conference committee is now inviting session proposals for the 2016 national conference, to be held in Vancouver, BC, from June 10 to 12, at the Coast Plaza Hotel & Suites.

If you have an idea for a session or would like to participate in a panel discussion, please complete and submit the Speaker Proposal Form. Proposals for additional panel topics are also welcome.
