Roundtable Discussions - 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

The most unique aspect of a DSA meeting is the ability to network with your peers and learn from others’ experiences.

Sit across the table from colleagues who have the solutions to the issues you are facing—or can at least tell you what has or hasn’t worked for them. Pick from a variety of specific discussion areas and get ready to have a great conversation.
