What if I can't be there?

Recordings  of most past annual meetings, with keynotes, are available on the website and do not require a log-in to view or download. On the website, look for the tab called “Annual Meetings.” It is the second one from the left on a desktop computer. Click that and give it time to load and you should be able to watch or listen to past meetings and keynotes.

This year we hope to record an audio of the meeting and panel discussion. We will not be streaming it live, but will post it on the website a week or two after the event. So check back by the last week of November and then it should appear in the Annual Meetings tab with the others.
