SMRP is no stranger to virtual events. The 2020 Annual Conference, originally planned to take place in Columbus, Ohio, transitioned to a virtual format due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This event welcomed over 600 attendees and included a wide variety of track sessions, workshops, and more. Similarly, SMRP Simposio, an event held solely in Spanish, welcomed nearly 75 attendees in its virtual format.
