First up, the big thing this week is NERD Summit 2021!

In 2021 we will be virtual again, but are changing the format.

Friday (3/19) will be a normal day of sessions – presentations given by speakers.

Saturday (3/20) will be open discussion sessions, which are commonly called “BOFs” ( Birds of a Feather), people coming together to discuss a topic of interest. These meetings will have a leader who will structure the discussion with 3 or so discussion questions around the topic to be discussed.

Sunday (3/21) will be a Training Day – an opportunity for people to come together and learn from each other. More info coming soon.
