For the first time in RMC history, ARM created a conference app for attendees. This new app included a regularly updated schedule, session reminders, and an activity stream where attendees could share photos and vote on polls during the conference. Attendees were also able to rate and make comments about the presentations they attended and presenters.

Breakout and plenary sessions covered various topics including LGBT and same-sex concerns, handling and preventing active shooting situations, cybersecurity, and emergency planning for camping grounds and schools. Attendees also had the chance to discuss topics more in-depth during a new segment titled Power Chats. Some of the questions discussed in the Power Chats included child on child abuse, understanding liabilities, communications crises and summer camp risks.
