Help Us Continue to Enhance the BEA Conference Program
We want to continue to enhance and evolve the BEA Conference Program each year to ensure it meets your needs. To help us do that, we will be collecting information on how much traffic each session gets by scanning badges at the door and will be handing out session evaluations after each session. Please be sure your badge is scanned at the door and that you take a few minutes to complete the evaluations. This feedback helps us to tailor the sessions each year by knowing which ones are popular or not so we can refine for the next year. Thank you!
