Update on the 2020 APOMA Tech Workshop in Boulder, CO
(November 2020)



Dear valued member, 

After much consideration within the APOMA leadership team, the upcoming Colorado Tech Workshop slated for November 2020 has been postponed until 2022. However, much of the course material has already been created and we are working on ways to distribute the content to you. The insights from our courses and speakers will be made available through various digital platforms.

Please keep an eye out in your inbox for further information. Thank you for your continued support and please take care and be safe. 

Sincerely, 

Lee Steneken
APOMA Board President-Elect and 2020 Tech Workshop Chair

If you were unable to attend, the presentation has been posted to the Members Only section of the APOMA website. If you are a member in good standing and would like to review the presentation, please contact us for the new username and password for our recently updated site.
