I just arrived back in Wichita from beautiful Portland, Oregon where the 8th Annual Quality Matters Conference was hosted. The city–and especially the conference–was such a breath of fresh air.
The OLC Accelerate conference is coming up November 16th through 18th and they will be streaming sessions through each day on various fascinating topics and issues. Having gone to the conference in Orlando last year, I am excited to see what new discussions will be held. Looking through the schedule of sessions, it was difficult to decide which ones to attend, but here are some that made my list for this year.
