Shaping the Future 2022 - Postponed

We want to thank all of our presenters, guests and delegates for your patience and understanding as we navigate through the ever changing COVID-19 pandemic. We have made the decision to postpone our annual Shaping the Future conference to Spring 2022. This was not an easy decision but we feel it is the right decision to make for this time, considering the health and safety of our presenters, guests, delegates and staff, as well as acknowledging the other challenges our sector is experiencing at this time. Both the in-person and virtual conference components are being postponed.
