Start Time:12:00 PM MDT

Speakers: Ian Glazer, Heather Flanagan, Lance Peterman

IDPro is the association for digital identity professionals. Launched at Identiverse 2017 (Chicago), the last three years have seen tremendous progress for the core mission of the organization: helping to professionalize the Identity Industry. We've established a skills and programs survey – the first of its kind for the industry! – helping to guide individual career development and to give hiring companies and team leaders insight into where to focus their efforts. We've supported meet-ups (both physical and virtual) around the world. Our members-only workspace has thrived, with practitioners sharing knowledge and leading practices and helping each other to solve real-world problems in real time. And – perhaps most importantly – the first part of the crowd-sourced Body of Knowledge has been released, with progress on the next volumes accelerating. In this open-to-all session, IDPro's board, staff and individual members will provide an update on progress, insight into what's coming next, and will outline how you can help your fellow professionals. Join us!
