  • By now you should all be covered for logistics: travel, accommodations, schedule, etc. If you have any questions about those things, you can follow up with whoever you’ve been talking to: Dara, Marc, Erica, or Crystal. We will take a few minutes toward the end of the webinar to check in on how scheduling your meetings is going. But we will focus mostly on what to expect for the bulk of the fly-in: the training and Hill meetings.
