Conference Update: Unmuted Sessions Announced

Zoom fatigue? It’s real. We get it. And we have the cure.

We know how much you are craving interpersonal interaction with your colleagues and peers.  We invite you to turn on your computer sound and join the Unmuted Sessions at The Spring Conference. Each day of the conference we will offer you 3 opportunities for casual group discussion in a safe space around topics that matter to you and our industry. Pop into several sessions over the 45 minutes or stay put wherever you like. Meet, talk, chat, listen, network, brainstorm. And it’s okay to keep your speaker muted, too, and sit back and listen – do what’s right for you in the moment. 

Follow these steps to connect with your colleagues:

  1. Register for The Spring Conference for Animal Welfare Advancement
  2. We’re recording all 16 trainings so you can catch them anytime through August 31.  But these 9 Unmuted Sessions are MUST ATTEND LIVE-ONLY. So, mark your calendars for this special line-up:
