“Thanks for a great Congress! It was enlightening and fun. Hope to be back next year! … In almost all of my meetings this week, the Congress and the speakers were discussed and praised.  THAT is the best evaluation any program can receive – a high take home rating. … A great meeting as always.  Good to see people I too rarely connect with. … I enjoyed the Congress tremendously and feel that its value to the professional community and the community at large is priceless. … I enjoyed Saturday and thought the time was spent well."
