The 2020 PLLIP Virtual Summit, Transformation 2020: Instrumental Tools for the Future, took place on Friday, July 10, 2020, and was a huge success.  A recap of the Summit keynote is available on the On Firmer Ground blog, and additional recaps will be added. If you were registered for the Summit, recordings have been posted in the 2020 PLLIP Virtual Summit My Communities, along with the speaker handouts.  Everything is available under the “Latest Shared Files” from the homepage or the Library tab.

A big thank you to the PLLIP Summit organizers and speakers for all of their efforts!
