The Conference Planner will give you access to browse and search sessions and events, favorite sessions you want to attend and give you access to the presenter’s slides. (Note: It is up to the presenter to offer their session slides/handouts.)

Login to the Conference Planner:
First time users: Select the “Login” link on the Login page to create an account. This will allow you to select sessions as favorites and create a schedule for the conference.
Already have an account: Log in by using the access key that was emailed to you when creating your profile. If you do not remember your access key, you can select the “Forgot Access Key” link on the Login page.
Adding Favorites and Creating a Schedule:
Once you are logged in, you can select the star to right of the session title. Selecting the star allows you to add the session to your itinerary. Once added, you have the ability to view your selected session in the “My Schedule” portion of your profile, manage your favorites and even add notes about the session. Note: Selecting sessions as favorites does not indicate a place holder in the session. Session seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
View Session Details:
Select the title of a session in your search results to open a pop-up box that provides the complete information for that session. You can read the description, author/presenter, and view the learner objectives. If you decide you would like to add a particular session to your personal itinerary, you may do so by selecting the star next to the title. This turns the session to a "Favorite” and will be designated as a session to add to your personal itinerary.
To add notes, you will need to be logged into your profile. Once you have favorited a session, you can select the favorited session from the search option or select within the “My Schedule” section of your profile. Simply click on the grey square next to the star and add a note. Once you have added your details the square will turn blue.
