The SDMS Virtual Conference was born out of necessity when the 2020 SDMS Annual Conference was forced online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Offered free to SDMS members in celebration of the SDMS’ 50th anniversary, the event was extremely popular and received high ratings from attendees. In response to overwhelming feedback from members for similar future virtual conference experiences, the SDMS decided to make the event an annual occurrence.
