Everybody knows that the Annual Meeting provides countless opportunities to network and learn from other colleagues—and here are a few more. To keep the conversation flowing in Austin, informal "Discussion Den" chats will be held throughout the conference as alternatives to regular programs. Attendees can brainstorm, sound off, and share their challenges, experiences, and ideas—and strengthen ties to their professional community. Check out the schedule of hosted topics below, and plan to be part of the conversation.

You'll find the Discussion Den in ACC's Exhibit Hall 4.
