HIGHLIGHTS OF THE 2020 CONFERENCE

  • "I took something away from every session which I rarely ever say about a conference."

  • "I was very impressed with the speakers I listened to and how organized the conference was.  I honestly learned a lot."
  • "The facilities were top notch, the food was delicious and most importantly the session topics and organization of sessions were very organized and efficient to meet participant needs! The Exhibit Hall was inviting and easy to access as well as easy access to visit with representatives/vendors."
  • "Top quality speakers for all sessions made it hard to choose which sessions to attend - a great problem to have!"

  • "This was a great conference! I took away many important lessons, got to make connections with lots of people, grew professionally and gained ideas for my teaching."

  • "I felt so inspired and renewed after after attending this conference! It's so great to have things reiterated that I maybe forgot, or to learn something new. Opportunities for networking were plentiful."
