Conference wrap-up: Thanks to everyone who participated!!

We just wrapped up our 2nd virtual conference on April 20, 2021, and I wanted to thank all those who participated at the conference as well as those who worked to make it happen! We had 258 attendees and over 25 presentations from HEDW community members and sponsors. Much of the positive feedback we received from the conference sessions will help shape the tasks and priorities of the HEDW Board over the next year. We will work hard to bring you content in the delivery mechanisms you’ve told us work best for you! The contributions by the teams and the participants of the conference continued to solidify the belief that the HEDW is providing networking, support and experiences that our membership value and can take advantage of!

A special note of thanks to the following:

  • HEDW Comm Team  ( Dave Baugh, Dale Amburgey) for developing the web experience and scheduling the sessions with the Conference Chair (Dale Amburgey) and the Program Chair (Colleen Miller)
  • Research Chair (Heather Chapman) for her research and presentations on the Top 10 interests of the community
  • Sponsor Chair (Kevin Joseph) for working with the sponsor teams

Our presentations and videos have been collected, and those who attended have an opportunity to view now, and the rest of the community will be able to view the videos and PowerPoints in the near future.

Next year we will be hosted by the University of Illinois – we look forward to seeing you (hopefully in person) there!
