Program Highlights

ACR Convergence Community Hubs

During ACR Convergence, all participants will have the opportunity to join Community Hubs – a unique feature that allows participants to engage with experts and connect with peers who share the same interests. Our dedicated hub hosts are partnered with an enthusiastic Twitter Ambassador to foster discussion on each hub topic. New for 2021: Participants will be able to add the hub programming to their agenda.

Hubs will be open Saturday, November 6 – Tuesday, November 9, from noon–2:00 PM ET and 5:00–7:00 PM ET. Below is a list of hubs, including each hub’s co-hosts and Twitter Ambassadors.
