POWERUp 2020

The Call for Presentations is now open for the  POWERUp 2020, COMMON’s spring conference, which takes place April 20 – 23, 2020 at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta.

Subject Matter Experts have defined topics that potential speakers are invited to submit sessions on in each course of study provided in the link below. All areas are looking for new topical sessions, so please take some time to look through the list to see if something would spark a new idea for a session.

In addition to standard 60-minute sessions and open labs, we are looking for workshops that provide a total value solution to an attendee. In a 2.5-hour workshop, foundational elements, essential knowledge, best practices, and how-to knowledge/case studies should be presented to demonstrate the essentials on a topic.
