Have a look at our Schedule-at-a-Glance to get a feel for this year's LANDSCAPES program. We are putting the finishing touches on our full education schedule and will make that available in August.
LANDSCAPES will look a bit different this year because of COVID-19. We are taking Federal, State, and Local guidance into account when we plan the way we host individual events and education during the conference. Because of that, at this time, you won't find the perennial favorite Breakfast With Champions on the live-event schedule. But look for news about a virtual version! We'll provide more updates as we get closer to the event.
