    Is it too late to propose a workshop? I didn’t find a proposal form.

    Just wondering if you received my proposal for a presentation and if it looks possible.

    Thanks,
    Chad

      Hello Chad,

      Thanks for your interest in presenting at the NAPC.
      Adam Brock is coordinating the programming. I am passing this inquiry to him.

    I noticed this is the last day. Please check out the story on my web site. I have a lot to share.

    I’m willing to be a part of presenting and board discussions or whatever adds to the event.

    Thank you,

    Looks fun. Is there a list of topics for the workshops, round tables, and breakout sessions? I’d love to get a feel of the actual material going to be covered.
