Preconference learning opportunities offer a deep dive into new skills and knowledge before the conference officially kicks off. These highly interactive sessions will help you build expertise and help you develop the skills that you can immediately put to work in your organization. This is an excellent opportunity to engage in shared learning and networking with your peers in an intimate setting. Space is limited, so be sure to register early.
This program is not included in the full conference registration and you must register separately. To purchase the preconference program and a Core4 conference registration, you will need to add both to your shopping cart during the registration checkout process. If you have already registered for Core4 and would like to add the preconference program, please contact our professional development specialists by calling: 855-404-2783.
