Entire Program Schedule

Event location
The Seminar will be held at the Public Theater located at 425 Lafayette Street, New York, NY. Click here for directions and maps.

Onsite Check in
If you're already registered, as you enter the Public, please stop by the registration table in the lobby to pick up your name badge and program. Walk-up registration is also welcome, so bring along a friend or two!

Cocktail Party
It's not all policy talk. End the seminar by joining us for a cocktail party on-site from 6:00 - 7:00 PM! All panelists, attendees, staff and volunteers are invited to join us for a cash-bar, hors d’oeuvres and conversation. It's hands down the best way to get to know panelists and participants.
