Attendees must visit the host site in-person at a host site. Individual virtual attendance outside of a host site is not part of the conference offerings.
The conference will be streamed from Denver, CO which is located in the Mountain Time zone. All times on the agenda linked below have been converted to Central Time.

Additionally, the last session on Wednesday and Thursday may not be available as it runs into the evening for us. Please check with your site host.
If you do visit the AHG Virtual Agenda on their website, please note it is not the same as the agenda for Minnesota State.
