How to Use the Online Program Planner

Online Program Planner

The ADAA Online Program Planner is a searchable directory that allows you to review the abstract, learning objectives, and speakers for every session of the conference. Search for sessions by category, topic, presenter, date and time to create an individual program based on your interests, which you can save and print out as your own itinerary. A printed final program will be available at the conference.
