Spring 2019

Below are the handouts we have been provided by the SWOMA Speakers. If you do not find a handout for a particular session it is because we have not received one from the speaker.  You may check back nearer the actual date of the conference to see if additional handouts have been received. Please download and/or print out any of the handouts you want to have during the SWOMA conference. 

NOTE: The SWOMA Session Guide will be provided to you in a print format when you arrive at the conference. Braille users will receive an abbreviated version of the agenda in braille. All participants may want to download an electronic version of this document to review it in advance of arriving at the Fredonia Hotel.
