From an affiliate perspective, hear an update on the work of the Collaborative Operating Model (COM), how this may impact your affiliate and how you can provide input on shaping the direction of this initiative. There will be plenty of time for Q&A and open discussion to ensure that affiliates leave with a better understanding of the past COM efforts and what they can expect in the coming months.
