New this year, one set of breakout sessions will be facilitated idea showcases - think of a poetry slam!  Nine participants in each session have the opportunity to illustrate a success story.  With five minutes each, the nine individuals will describe a program, activity, strategy, or serendipitous event that improved their LLI.  Those in attendance will take away nine suggestions, so with four showcases planned - that's 36 new ideas!
