I think the conference was fantastic – as a first timer, I was so impressed with the level of organization and inclusion from registration to finding a seat in the very large general sessions. The presenters were exemplary, the location was lovely and I enjoyed spending time with so many like-minded colleagues. I was beyond pleased with the conference from start to finish and absolutely hope to attend again in the future.— Kristin Roy
