ROMBA 2022 Session Director Application

Thank you for your interest in organizing a session for the 2022 ROMBA Conference! This year's conference will take place in Washington, DC from October 6th-8th.  With the exception of pre-MBA sessions, all content will take place in person and Session Directors will need to attend the conference in person. Pre-MBA sessions will run virtually on September 8th.
