Virtual Meetings
Launching for the first time in 2023, SBL is planning a brand new Global Virtual Meeting. As a meeting designed from the ground up for a virtual environment, it can offer experiences, opportunities, mentoring possibilities, presentation formats, and accessibility that are not possible in an in-person meeting. This means emphasizing the possibilities of both live and asynchronous participation, as well as exploring new modes of participation that differ from those of past SBL meetings.

There will be many details updated here as the plans for this new meeting progress. Be sure to continue to check the virtual meetings page for updates.
