What is

UP 2020 was intended to build on what we accomplished in 2019. However, recent events have made coming together a bit difficult. Faced with the choice of cancelling or going online, we knew we had to Unite The Prairies somehow.

 

So, we are pseudo-proud to introduce an entirely virtual one-day conference. Welcome to UP-ish.
