Mobile App
The Conference App, sponsored by Today's Business Solutions, is currently available for Android devices and via a mobile website.  Due to issues with Apple's iOS 8 update, approval of all new apps for the Apple Store has been delayed.  We hope that the app will be approved and live by the time you arrive in Springfield.  We apologize for this delay, which is unfortunately out of our hands.
