I look forward to hearing these presenters listed on the US Chess Trust website. The Chess in Education Coalition would like to help promote this event to a broader audience via our website. To do that, we need to explain how to gain live access to these sessions. 1) When will we get information about live streaming of this event? There is nothing on the US Chess Trust site yet. 2) Will the Q&A sessions after each session be open to streaming participants? Neil Dietsch, Managing Director Chess in Schools
