Community. Connection. Those words have been used a lot since March. And we imagine those words mean something different to each of us now too. Webster defines community very simply as “a unified body of individuals”. Unified. What a beautiful word. All three of these words define Summit each year but hold especially true this year. Even though we don’t find ourselves in the same physical space this year, connection and unified community will still define Summit. Yes, there will still be amazing education. Yes, you’ll see inspiring keynotes. Yes, you’ll learn new and exciting skills and resources you need now and in the future as work changes. But mostly, you’ll connect. With your neighbor. With those a town or two away. And with admins from all over the globe. Because at the end of the day, we need each other for learning and support today, tomorrow, and always.
The education sessions at Summit provide relevant, engaging training with opportunities to ask questions of the trainer in real time. Specific session descriptions, with times listed in Central Time (CT), are linked in the schedule below.

When we talk about virtual Summit, technology probably immediately comes to mind.
What platform is it on? Can I access it? What do I need to have to get the most out of my experience?
Here is a short checklist of the recommended equipment you will want to enjoy all Summit has to offer.
All Summit 2020 sessions will be held in Pathable, the web-based virtual conference platform you can
access via desktop or app. Here is a short video of how it works; we’ll provide many more instructional
videos as we get closer to Summit launch.
Would you love to attend Summit but can’t attend live? The Summit Post Pass will be available after Summit via Learn@IAAP and will give you access to most of what Summit has to offer in videos that you can watch at your convenience.
Have you ever thought about earning a certification? IAAP offers the NCCA-accredited Certified Administrative Professional (CAP) designation, a comprehensive credential specifically for administrative professionals.

And for you CAP holders who must recertify, Summit 2020 offers up to 26 recertification points when you view additional sessions via the Summit Post Pass.
