BBPOC 2013 Panels

We are very excited to share with you the tentative panel schedule (I say tentative because as always the panels are subject to change and we will be posting a more detailed schedule the closer we get to the conference and after we confirm with our panelists). As always, we look forward to connecting with old friends and finding new ones. If you have a topic you are interested in hearing about leave a comment or shoot one of us an email because we are always open to suggestions. :-)
