2020 Summit: A Reimagined Virtual Convening

Due to the recommendations from local civic leaders and public health officials regarding the spread of COVID-19, we decided to transform much of our in-person 2020 Summit into the digital space. As the Summit has always been a place for improvers to learn from one another, this tradition continued in the virtual convening. Held on April 1–3, 2020, Summit attendees had access to live keynote and breakout sessions, prerecorded sessions, and poster presentations.


2020 Summit Digital Library

Now, much of the 2020 Summit virtual program, including live breakout session recordings, prerecorded sessions, keynote presentations, and posters, is available in the new 2020 Summit Digital Library. This resource is available to 2020 Summit registrants, as well as new subscribers.
