Special Interests Roundtables
Wednesday, April 6, during Lunch
Conference attendees have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share. That is why we are turning some of our circular tables at lunch into special interest group roundtable discussions. Look for the topic signs at these special designated tables and join in the group discussion over lunch. This is also an excellent opportunity to connect with others who share your topic of interest and add them to your network of professional contacts. All you need to bring to the table are your questions and your experience.
No prior sign-up is required, but seating will be based on a first come - first serve basis.
Thursday, April 7, 2:30-4:00 Session
Open Information Sharing Dialogue
Is there a topic of interest to you that is not being presented at QUEST this year? Then, the Solutions Forum is where you want to be. Attend the Solutions Forum to discuss the topic of your choice with QUEST speakers and your fellow QUEST practitioners. It's simple to participate. To place your topic on the list, post it to the Solutions Forum schedule by the QUEST registration desk on Wednesday or Thursday morning. Be sure to check out the other topics and consider combining your topic with any similar issues that may already have been posted. Next, vote for topics of interest to you. The topics selected for discussion in the Solutions Forum will be announced during Thursday's lunch. As the person who proposed the topic, you will introduce the discussion, describing the topic and explaining what they are interested in learning. If you feel that you can contribute to the topic or benefit from the discussion, please join the Forum. Everyone's ideas and productive debate are welcomed!
