March 23 - March 26
Rather than relinquishing victory to COVID-19 concerns, UIDP has transitioned much of the content planned for our March 23-26 spring conference to a virtual event—and we’re cordially inviting you to log in, contribute, and help us make our inaugural virtual conference one for the record books. See frequently asked questions about the transition and webinar technical assistance FAQs.
Welcome to UIDPVirtual 2020, featuring an agenda packed with curated topics and presented by an outstanding set of national thought leaders and academic and corporate practitioners.
We will host this live virtual event the week of March 23-26—the same time frame we reserved for our annual spring conference. Look for regular agenda updates over the next two weeks, but plan now to attend. See agenda and speakers.
UIDPVirtual 2020 will allow you to access content from anywhere in the world. You’ll play an active role as you watch, listen and interact via live Q&A and interactive tools.
After the live presentations, you’ll be able to download materials and watch session recordings 24/7—whenever it’s convenient for you. We believe this asynchronous access will enable even more of our members and guests to experience UIDPVirtual 2020.
