For Those Registered for the Plenary Session.

  • The plenary is scheduled for Saturday, May 14 at Peoples State Forest in Barkhamsted.

  • The agenda for the plenary can be found online here.
  • Lunch will be provided for registered attendees. There will also be breakfast pastries, coffee, and water.
  • To try to mitigate the use of plastic, we will not be offering plastic water bottles at the event. We will provide water coolers. Please bring your own refillable water bottles.
