8:00 AM - 9:30 AM: #JointheConversation Presidents Panel
 
#JointheConversation Presidents Panel
Why are there so many sexuality organizations? It's hard to decide who to listen to, where to turn for accurate information and which to join. Wouldn't it be easier if we, as professionals, had one organization for all our information? SASH has long believed there is room at the table for all sexual health ideas and that the diversity of organizations are necessary to provide the public, professionals and clinicians with necessary information. To learn more about other viewpoints, SASH invited the Presidents of other non-profit sexuality organizations to join us for #JointheConversation Presidents Panel and share their vision of sexual health and wellness. The panel will also discuss how they believe their organization fits with others and how future collaboration can make sexual health a common topic and vision for all. Join the Presidents of SASH, AASECT, SSSS and ATSA in bringing us together.
