Session Evaluations

Links to individual session evaluations can be found in the session descriptions of the mobile app, or on the Online Session & Handout Directory web page. As part of ATIA’s “go green” initiative, we will not be providing printable session evaluation forms. We encourage you to use electronic options and help preserve our environment.
