Concurrent Sessions are scheduled education sessions held at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas on Monday, Jan. 29 and Tuesday, Jan. 30. These sessions were developed through research and member surveys to provide the most beneficial and timely information available in the industry.
The popular Power Talk sessions that ATSSA members have come to know and love over the years are now called Roundtable Discussions, a name that better represents the overall objective of these sessions, which is to have an open and frank conversation with peers regarding the topic at hand.
Attendees receive 1.4 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for attending this year's conference and education sessions.
