The Forum’s 18th Annual Conference will be held March 21-25, 2022, with two days of virtual programming and three days of on-site programming in Chicago, IL. Colleagues who register for the full conference will receive full access to both the on-site AND virtual programming. It is an understatement to say that we are excited to see everyone in person!

If you are unable to travel, you do have the option of registering at a reduced rate for the virtual programming only. The virtual portion of the conference will be conducted on a state-of-the-art interactive platform that allows us to deliver high quality sessions and opportunities for discussion.
