    2016 ACDIS Conference: A behind-the-scenes preview

    Anyone who has participated in the ACDIS Conference knows that there’s a lot going on—and trust us, it’s a lot of work. But what you might not know is that the entire agenda of speakers and sessions isn’t selected by the ACDIS administration alone—we recruit a team of 12 volunteers to serve on our Conference Committee.
