Frequently Asked Questions

When and Where is the conference?

The Learning Session will be held in Denver, Colorado from Monday, October 21 to Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at the Hilton Denver City Center. More information on lodging and booking can be found here.

Who should attend?

We recommend bringing 4-8 team members from your community, with 8 being a firm cap. Teams with fewer than four attendees often lack critical perspective, which can stall discussion.

Teams with more than eight members often have trouble maintaining focus when planning together as a team. Due to space limitations, eight will be a firm cap for teams at this Learning Session. If you'd like help planning whom to bring, please reach out to your coach!

In terms of who should attend, start with your team lead and your data lead. For descriptions of those roles, click here. To fill out the rest of your team, remember that the main theme for this Learning Session will be community case conferencing, so consider filling out your team with some additional folks who attend community case conferencing meetings.

Finally, it’s helpful for there to be some continuity between Learning Sessions. A Learning Session can be a good way to engage new team members, but you should also have strong representation from team members who have attended in the past, especially your team lead and data lead. 

If you’d like some additional guidance deciding who should attend, your coach is happy to help!
