But it was a GREAT conference with a diverse line up of speakers with lots of take-aways and lots of networking!  The atmosphere was one of almost celebration…. of being together, of learning, of a physical and mental break and challenge to come back to some “normal”.  Thank you to all who attended!  And to all who made this confernce a success.  Each one of those people volunteer their time to serve YOU so you can serve YOUR people!
