CIT International, Inc.

2018 CIT International Conference

Keynote and Workshop Presentations Now Available

Below is a listing of all the workshops and Keynote Presentations from the 2017 CIT International Conference.  We are still collecting so they are not all here yet.  Please be patient with us.

Please note the following when looking for a workshop or Keynote presentation:

1.  Only one of our four Keynotes had PPT presentations.  Those are attached as PDF files.

2.  People sent in their presentations in two ways - either as a PPT or as a PDF.  If it came in as a PPT when you click on the title it will download the presentation to your lower left corner of your monitor.  If it came in as a PDF it will open right up as a document.  We could not convert the PPT's to PDF as some have animation and layering which would get lost in the transfer.  

3.  For those presentations that are in a PPT format, the best way to view those once you have opened them up is to view as a full Slide Show.  Many presenters have included animation and layering of slides so you won't get the full effect without viewing the PPT as a presentation (slide show).

4.  We will be working to get as many, if not all, of the Presentations from the conference.  If there is a particular workshop that does not have a link to the presentation please be patient as we will continue to reach out to presenters.  If a presenter does not wish to release their presentation we will note that.  We will then provide you with the Presenter's contact information for you to contact directly.
