About the summit
The summit will run from Sept. 28 to Oct. 7. During that time, we'll release a new video presentation every day. You'll get an email for each new video.

Watch the videos. Download PDF notes. Generate FREE certificates of completion for 1 professional development hour for each session you watch.

After the last video releases, the summit will stay open for another week. Get caught up with any videos you missed, or rewatch some!

On Oct. 14, the summit will close. At that time, all the videos, notes, certificate generators -- everything -- will become unavailable.

It's like an in-person conference: everyone is there until the conference closes. Then everyone goes home.
