Open Forum

The Open Forum is often one of the most highly rated sessions at our live events. During these challenging times, when all events have turned to a virtual platform, CRF is excited to be able to offer an opportunity to bring everyone together and help foster the sense of community we achieve at our in-person events. In the Open Forum session, all attendees will have a chance to participate – you can ask questions and/or provide answers to others. As always, this Open Forum session allows for immediate feedback from your peers on the questions/topics that are important to YOU!

Please be sure to submit any questions or topics you would like to discuss on the registration form or you can email them directly to Angela.

NOTE: Since this is a fully interactive session, registration is limited! Please be sure to register ASAP before the session is full! Additionally, if you register and then find you are unable to attend, please let Angela know so that we can offer your spot to another practitioner.
