The Working with the Experts evaluations were overwhelming positive. Thank you to everyone for your patience, time, attention, and great participation. A special thanks to our fabulous presenters! This would never have been possible without their time and efforts to plan and provide the wonderful sessions. Several people mentioned that we should repeat it next year and we are looking into that possibility. We welcome your ideas to make it even better!
