THE Performance Improvement Conference will feature two roundtable sessions: Chat ‘n’ Chew on Tuesday, April 16, 12:45 – 2:00 p.m., and the Lunch ‘n’ Learn on Wednesday, April 17, noon – 1:15 p.m. Attendees can choose from more than 60 informative and fast-paced sessions hosted by industry experts that will expose them to a wide range of PI topics.

How the Sessions Work
Roundtable hosts will lead three 20-minute presentations, each to a different group of attendees. Attendees are invited to enjoy a sandwich and to select a roundtable discussion to participate in. Each 20-minute round will be followed by a 5-minute break for participants to select their next presentation. Attendees who participate in the Chat ‘n’ Chew and the Lunch ‘n’ Learn will have the opportunity to participate in six different educational presentations.
