2017 Annual Conference
We just finished our second annual conference and the results were truly amazing. Thank you to all of our incredible presenters, our exhibitors and corporate sponsors, and the most important, our attendees. We had over 250 eager attendees who were able to participate with each other and had the opportunity to ask questions of the presenters. They were able to not only take home knowledge from this conference, but the contacts that will provide them with professional networking abilities long after the conference is a distant memory. Below are a few comments that came from attendees:
“This was by far the best conference I have ever attended.”
“I can’t express enough how great I thought the conference was this year! I enjoyed all of the speakers and felt I came away with great ideas and plenty of food for thought.”
“Thank you for a great conference. There was a very diverse group of speakers, which enabled all of the different agencies represented to view varying aspects regarding the problems of diversion.”
“We all gained valuable knowledge at the conference”
Thanks to all of you, and we hope to see all of you back again next year.
