    Please join us on Wednesday , July 28th from 9am-1pm Central Time for a virtual conference focusing Shop Life After Covid. What have we learned from the onset of COVID-19? What tools/procedures/guidelines will we keep when shop life goes back to "normal"? We will feature some speakers and panel discussions focusing on and giving examples of how some schools are managing this process.

    POSSIBLE TOPICS*:

    • Shop Life after COVID: Worries, concerns, solutions
    • COVID implementations: What worked? What will you keep?
    • How will your shop management change? 
    • 3rd Party Software Solutions: Examples of software options that have helped with shop/equipment management, tracking training, etc.
    • Student Behaviors in the shop: Mental Health, Entitlement Attitude, Overall Tone
