Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. The venue fire marshal reserves the right to close a session when the room has reached maximum capacity. Cell phones should be silenced. NAR reserves the right to remove any guest who is disruptive.

Presentation materials are copyrighted by the speakers, their companies, or others from whom they have received permission to use. Written permission from the speaker is required before publishing.
