Watch-in-Advance Sessions

100% Live Discussion, Watch Recordings in Advance

A few of GSA's technical sessions (see below) are part of a new presentation format this year. This new format requires meeting attendees to watch the recorded presentations early and come to the live session prepared with questions and comments to contribute to a dynamic discussion. Recorded presentations will not be shown during the scheduled session.

Meeting attendees can watch the recorded presentations at their leisure any time between 19 and 23 October. The time during the live session will be devoted entirely to Q&A/discussion. This format allows more time for interaction and networking during the sessions. You must be registered for the meeting to watch sessions in advance.
