Workshop 'B' Descriptions

 Workshop 'B' Descriptions  1:00pm - 2:15pm 

Please review and be prepared to select and register for an 'A', 'B' and 'C' workshop to be registered for the full day. 
Partial registrations cannot be supported. 

This activity feature is new to the AOP Conference.  Because we are hosting this conference during spring time we wanted to incorporate movement and activity into our day.  This will also help us to stay alert and focused for your final session of the day, Workshop 'C'. 

You are asked to select and register for an activity you would like to participate in during this timeframe that is listed below.  We will be back from these activities prior to the start of Workshop 'C' so you have time to take a break, fill your water bottles and get to your session.

There will be shuttle transportation leaving from the MUB Circle at 1:00pm for B-03, B-04, B-05 and B-06.   This will allow for enough time to get to your destination so that you can also enjoy the tour you signed up for.   The remaining sessions will all be walked to from the MUB Circle with a designated host leader.

For those who don't wish to partipate in one of the walks, you have the option of staying in the MUB and participating in the Campus Recreation led activity/exercises in the Strafford Room, or attend a film presentation in the MUB Theater 1.

You do need to register for the session of your choice during this timeframe so we can manage the activities and keep everyone hydrated and safe!  Thank you!!!
