Over 100 educational sessions or educational "talks" are available over four days during the annual conference.
~"It was an absolute pleasure to meet you last week, and I thoroughly enjoyed the CPRS annual conference. It is an impressive undertaking for just two people, and it was clear to me that your hard work to encourage highly interactive sessions has paid off – there was a culture of collaboration and participation throughout our session, and I really appreciated how much your members dove headfirst into the activities we presented and the questions we posed." Sarah Sieloff, Executive Director, Center for Creative Land Recycling
Full session schedule is posted online the end of every October.
