Workshop Schedule

The workshops have the same daily schedule. We begin on Sunday evening with a reception and dinner and conclude on Thursday afternoon at 4:00 p.m. We work hard but also respect your time. We know you need time to relax, take meals, and enjoy catered breaks. The only evening commitment is the Sunday dinner; all other evenings are on your own.
