We will supply a handheld and a wearable microphone. You will provide YOUR OWN LAPTOP with CONTENT. We will have the standard HDMI cords on hand in each room.

Breakout Session Leaders
Each room will be equipped for a video/ppt presentation and have a handheld microphone with sound. Find your ballroom number, then download the coordinating room diagram. All rooms are set "classroom style" by default. Session speakers may customize their room layout to either "rounds" or "theatre" - see examples below.
Attendees will draw inspiration from the Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center of Florida, which is transitioning into the Holocaust Museum for Hope and Humanity. The museum's vision of building a just and caring community aligns with the goals of many nonprofits. The newly established Take Action Institute, overseen by a dedicated steering committee, provides mentoring, leadership development, and research resources to empower the next generation of changemakers.
