This year we are offering two ways to attend TLC. Experience everything TLC has to offer from the comfort of home and expect the same great presenters and learning experiences at our annual conference. Learn more about what’s included in your registration below!


How do I attend the virtual conference?

A few days before TLC begins, you’ll receive an email invitation to visit TLC’s virtual venue; at this point, all pre-recorded breakout sessions will be available for viewing.

Once the actual conference begins, you’ll have access to a livestream of the keynote presentations. All breakouts will be recorded and available on-demand for 90 days—an awesome PD opportunity for all of our friends abroad!

Attending Virtual TLC will be as easy as clicking a link!
