    This year's theme is (drumroll, please)...

    Superhero You: Bridge Your Skills Gap

    We know that we're all capable of being super at our jobs--and LAP helps bring out the inner superhero in all of us-- even if we don't have Black Panther's advanced tech, Captain America's strength, Thor's chiseled good looks, or Black Widow's stealth.

    SO... for one and a half days, we'll showcase great ideas from amazing session facilitators. We want to help others level up their own abilities. We want to harness the powers of the collective to become the best teams and colleagues we can be. Detailed agenda, keynote announcements and more to come in the next few weeks.

    What's your super idea? Submit to be a session facilitator or register to attend.

    We can't wait to find out your superpower!

    Registration is now open!
