All conference sessions require pre-registration except the general sessions. Ticketed sessions mean your presenter is expecting you and will have adequate materials for session attendees. You avoid the cattle-call experience, and since your seat is assured, there is no need to rush to your session and wait in line.
This conference always reinvigorates me. I leave with strategies, ideas, and motivation to continue the important work of professional learning back in my district! This conference is a non-negotiable in my growth plans!— Erin Herbruck
