The CVSA Events App will serve as the virtual conference platform and will include both desktop and mobile-friendly participation options. The app will be available to registrants approximately two weeks in advance of the conference and will provide session links, resources and other relevant information. All registrants will receive an additional communication with login instructions. Note: All sessions are in Eastern Standard Time (EST).
