for FastLane.

 about 2 per year.  This year we brought in someone for an IRB workshop.
We also had a large workshop (2 sessions) for NSF general information.  We
plan to have a proposal writing workshop in the fall.

MINI CONFERENCES (nobody has much time)

told them they needed to come (or send someone). They just do it.
