"The conference overall was very informative and engaging. I really enjoyed all the presenters as they all brought a unique perspective to the table. I am looking forward to attending next year’s conference. This was my first year attending the Conference and I thought it was amazing. The Conference was very informative, offered skills/techniques as an administrator to place in the workplace and role model for staff, and allowed for relational situations and insight on how different individuals different obstacles."
