Fall Program 2009 Testimonials:

Great Job. Haven't been for some years, was good (before) but noticed a marked improvement. Like the locations far better than the Sofitel, more hip, more fun, better food especially for those of us coming out of town.

This is the best conference I have attended this year!

Again, an excellent conference. Graves 601 is a great venue. Good food.

Overall, excellent conference. Great speakers across the board this year!

Great job!
