A few things to note as we all prepare for this exciting day of learning and networking:


Registration and continental breakfast will begin at 8:00 am, and we will get started at 9:00 am.

We are going paperless! This means no folders will be provided at registration. Our agenda for the day will be available on the tables and projected on the screens as well. Electronic certificates will be made available after the event.

Handouts/Presenter slides

  • Those attending AM1 with Dr. Sheryl Smith-Gilman will have handouts made available to them electronically after the presentation.
  • Those attending AM2 with Tiziana Ciccone and Livia Mainella will not have handouts but are invited to visit and for a point of reference. All are welcome to come prepared with questions for the presenters as well.

Annual General Meeting

The ECRTNO Annual General Meeting will be held during the second half of lunch. Current members will be given a voting ballot at registration.
