I'm hoping you post this to the national/global listserv because there's a way for those of us not in Boston to join/watch this session...? 


Hi Susan,

To my knowledge the panel discussion will be broadcast live (and probably recorded for streaming purposes) as well.  There is no specific URL to go to just yet, but I am sure that once the streaming location is known, it will be on the event's web page :)
