EDUCATION ROUND-UP SESSIONS
Twenty-first century learning is evolving and so are our education sessions. Participate in quality programming that will focus on marketing, management, health, inspectors, and technical skills. With 20+ sessions addressing the entire supply chain, this year's education offers something for everyone.
Sessions will include a mix of traditional speakers lecturing on a topic as well as round-table discussions facilitated by an industry expert. The round-table sessions are designed to allow attendees to have a more meaningful and impactful experience through peer-to-peer interaction and reflective discussions. Our hope is that each attendee will leave with something they can practice when back in their daily routines, and that a collaborative and reflective environment will lend to this experience. In order for this format to be successful, you will need to get out of your comfort zone, be vulnerable, and participate in discussions with other like-minded individuals. Come ready to participate and learn in Fort Worth!
Expo education sessions that take place on Thursday, May 2 and Friday, May 3 are included in your registration fee.
Each participant will receive one CCU.
