Presenters have been encouraged to place material they want to share with attendees in a shared Google folder. This makes it easy to find resources for sessions you attend (or sessions you were unable to attend.) Go to the Presenters Resources folder to find the presenters' folder organized by last name. If a presenter is presenting multiple sessions, inside their named folder is a folder for each of their sessions.
