To help you plan your Leaders Assembly experience, all of our breakout sessions are organized by track. Want to dive deep into one or two subject areas? Follow those tracks! Prefer to dip your toe into lots of different topics? Feel free to hop around to any session in any track. Take a look below at a highlight of sessions offered in each track. Full session listings will be live in early November.
