  • Seminars- Presenters from the conference are given the opportunity to host hour long seminars in order to expand on the topic their covered in their presentation. More information can be found below.
  • Idea of the month- Anyone can submit an example of good practice in the form of a written article which is published monthly in WLV Insider and the Rich Exchanges webpage.
