    The Friday night event will be hosted by the candidates at Brocach Downtown. More info on that coming soon.

    Jeff Tucker keynote is Saturday Night after dinner.

    The Business agenda is set by the chair and by the committees who have business on the agenda. I would expect the business agenda within 1 month of the convention or sooner. The itinerary is not set in stone yet. What you see listed above is what the committee has decided on. Specific times will be released in the weeks to come.

    I look forward to seeing you all at the convention!
