Pathways to Prosperity 2021 Virtual Workshop Series

Due to the large number of high-quality workshops submitted for presentation at the P2P 2020 National Conference, we have launched the new Pathways to Prosperity Virtual Workshop Series commencing in mid-January 2021. The series includes up to two virtual workshops a week over the course of several months on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1:00 – 2:15 PM EST. The workshops take place on the same conference platform as was used for the P2P 2020 National Conference, with poster presentations, exhibitors, and networking functions still available, as well as videos from all plenaries and workshops. Full details of the workshop series are now available on the conference website.

The series is being offered at no cost to conference registrants and for a small fee to those who did not register for the Pathways to Prosperity 2020 National Conference. Registration for those who did not participate in the P2P 2020 National Conference but would like to attend the workshops is available here.
