Program at a Glance
(Schedule Subject to Change)


Welcome to the 2020 EOC Professional Development Forum (PDF)!  Please review the notes and schedule below for details on this year's program.

All the Business Sessions will take place within the main building of the hotel property – the Fairholm Inn Grand Room located on the main level. The Hillhurst Inn and Cranford Inn are adjacent buildings, so those staying there will have a 2-minute or less walk to the main building.

Breakfast on Wednesday and Thursday will be located at the Hillhurst Inn which is one of the buildings located on the Fairholm Boutique Inn property. Attendees staying at the Cranford Inn are just across the walkway from the Hillhurst Inn.

There is no group arranged transportation for events – for the most part, given the close proximity, attendees will be walking to different locations. Everything is within an easy 15 minute walk or less of the hotel/Inn. For those with mobility issues who are unable to walk both to and from the location, we will arrange for taxi pick-up and drop off.

After dinner on Wednesday and Thursday, attendees are welcome to explore the city as this is free time.  We have suggested a venue for Wednesday evening that hosts a live 'East Coast' band.
