Today marks the opening of the 2018 PLUS Conference! The next few days will be filled with fantastic networking opportunities, in-depth education sessions, and unparalleled keynote speakers. The weather is beautiful here in San Diego, and we’re excited to for the conference to get underway.

Opening the conference this afternoon will be our first keynote speaker, John Kerry, 68th Secretary of State. He will be answering questions submitted by conference attendees and speaking to his experience as a leading figure in the United States government. It’s going to be a wonderful start to a great conference.

If you have time before John Kerry’s address, there are a variety of TechByte sessions going on. Experts will be sharing their views and opinions on technology as well as giving advice on how to include it in everyday life. Stop by to chat about the latest tech gadgets, AI, and so much more. They are ready to answer any and all of your technology questions—check your event program for Tech Bar hours and the TechByte schedule throughout the conference.

This afternoon is also the RPLU Reception and conferment ceremony. PLUS would like to offer congratulations to all the new RPLU designees—this is a great achievement, and we’re glad you’re here at the conference.

Welcome to the 2018 PLUS Conference. We’re looking forward to the next few days!
