SWZDI Conference/Webinar

Status: Complete

Description: Since the inception of this pooled fund study in 1999, the Board of Directors has concluded that periodic conferences to present results of research funded under the program would be desirable. A conference was conducted in 2001 and another in 2005, the latter a multi-day event with vendors also invited to participate. Both of these conferences were judged to be successful and it was planned to schedule another such conference in 2009. Due to travel restrictions imposed by many state agencies, it was decided to delay the conference a year. Travel restrictions for many Board of Director members continued in 2010 and rather than continue to delay a potentially valuable presentation of important research results, it was proposed that a webinar format be adopted in lieu of a conventional conference.
