(2:00 PM – 4:00 PM)

Following the keynote address, we will host two moderated sessions for GPLLA members to discuss the many lessons we have learned, both personally and institutionally, during the ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis. Forced to make repeated pivots, we have all experienced successes and missteps. Drawing on the collective experience of our professional community, these sessions will provide a space to share the techniques, strategies, and practices that have proven successful for navigating these unprecedented times.

If you have questions or topics that you would specifically like to see addressed during these sessions, please include them in the registration form.

(4:00 PM – 5:00 PM)

Please join us after the programs for a virtual happy hour to (re)connect with colleagues and commemorate GPLLA’s 50th Anniversary.

No separate registration is necessary--the happy hour will immediately follow the afternoon programs and will use the same Zoom link.


Please note: there will be no registration fee for this year’s Institute. This has been made possible with generous support from our sponsors.


We look forward to seeing you on the 20th!
