The following Schedule-at-a-Glance is preliminary and meant only to provide attendees with a general overview of the Annual Meeting.  No updates to this outline will be made.

A detailed Program Agenda via the ACJS mobile app will be made available late December/early January prior to the event date.  Because of the abundant number of sessions and meetings provided during the Annual Meeting, the full agenda will not be provided in this format on the ACJS website or in hard copy at the meeting.  Attendees should refer to the ACJS mobile app for specific sessions, meeting titles, dates/times, presenters, and descriptions and/or a PDF document, which will be posted to the website just prior to the meeting.
