FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

It is very important to the success of the meeting that we have the executive representation from every Connect agency. It is essential to the success of the Strategic Issues Groups that all agencies are in attendance to not only present their issues but to provide feedback on the issues of the other agencies in their group. We ask that all Connect partners make it a priority to attend all sessions offered at the summit.
