South Florida Regional ASP Conference
Schedule and Registration Information
We are pleased to announce the schedule for the first annual South Florida Regional ASP Conference, hosted by Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad College of Law.
The conference will be held on Friday, January 29, from noon to 5:00 pm (Eastern time) on Zoom. The conference is free, but you must register in advance. To register, please use this link:

Come prepared to engage! In true ASP fashion, we envision this conference as being a place to share ideas, bounce ideas off of each other and get feedback, and leave with new inspiration for our own work! The conference will not operate as a webinar but instead will permit all participants to see and engage with each other in every session.
