The conference may be over, but you can still view all conference information here as a website on your laptop or phone, or as the app version of sched.com found at Google Play. The site, and the materials uploaded by presenters, shall remain online for at least two years. Check back for new material uploads, found at the bottom of the session descriptions. A few announcements:
1) We have found a gold sand dollar earring near the meeting rooms. If it’s yours, send email to catesolbb@hotmail.com. 
2) Let the volunteer conference planners know what went well and what needs improvement for next year in Pasadena. Complete the conference evaluation here: tinyurl.com/catesol19 by 10/15 if you can. Thanks!
