We asked registrants what session they might present - below are their answers. 


RootsCamp MA is participant driven and we encourage everyone to come prepared to present on a topic, facilitate a dialogue, or brainstorm best practices. Sessions are determined the morning of the event. Read "How Sessions Work" to become familiar with the process of setting the agenda.
