Upcoming Conference Presentations:

During the annual EOA conference there will be a number of EOA Center-related events.  A three-part concurrent session strand will provide the practical steps to submit a best practice.  Two of the authors of approved best practices, Robert Newton and Thomas Jefferson, will share their practices and how others can submit to the EOA Center.  On Monday morning we will announce the newest best practices to be added to our online program guide and recognize the authors of these outstanding additions.
