Community College Cyber Summit Virtual (3CSv) Registration is Open
3CSv is an experiment in providing a more interactive, virtual forum - different from most virtual conferences where presenters simply talk at the participants. This event is not to be confused with the face-to-face Community College Cyber Summit (3CS), Nov. 5-7 at Sinclair Community College in Dayton, OH. 3CSv takes place March 1st, with interactive and facilitated sessions in the morning and afternoon.
