While there are many overseas CIE conferences, this is believed to be the first to be held in the US since 2011. Kudos to the organizers for pulling together an interesting array of speakers in the wake of the pandemic.
Chess in Schools will cover the conference as part of the Chess in Education Initiative and report on the chessineducation.org website. US Chess Trust will record sessions and make them available to the public.
