Join us as we celebrate the 6th anniversary of our annual IPA VirtuCon.  Founded as a virtual event long before the COVID-19 pandemic made virtual the norm, VirtuCon was designed specifically for the busy indie! 

Participants will spend the afternoon exploring “the business of the business” – working ON the business instead of IN it.  You’ll hear first hand from experts who can answer your questions and allay your fears about running your own indie practice.  Stay tuned for more exciting details.
