Winds of Change

Concurrent Session Handouts 

In an effort to reduce the amount of unnecessary waste that results from printing session handouts, we have decided to post them here so that you may access what you need. Please note these will not be available to you in printed form at the conference.

Following are links to handouts which we have received from our conference guides. These are listed by session number and then session name.  Not all guides provide handouts or authorize us to post them. Please check back periodically, as we anticipate posting additional handouts.

Please Note: Some of these handouts are fairly large.  You may want to download the file first.

All of the handouts are in PDF format. If you have a problem opening one in Acrobat, you may need a more recent version of Acrobat viewer. You can click here to download the latest version.
