  • SSPs for Delegates: Delegates, please be sure to bring your own SSPs if at all possible. This way, you can make sure you have SSPs who meet your communication needs. If you are not able to bring SSPs, we will try our best to provide you with SSPs, but cannot guarantee that the SSPs will match your needs.
  • Confirmation Letters: We will be sending out confirmation letters for people who have registered for the conference. The confirmation letters will explain what to expect from the conference, and provide detailed information on conference activities. We will include sign up sheets for workshops, forums, recreation activities, tours and more. Please watch your emails and mailboxes, and send the sign up sheets in as soon as you get them. This will help us know how many people to expect for each event, and assist us in planning an enjoyable conference experience for you.
