    People often ask me why I have rarely missed a Conference in these last 30 years – this conference provided it all: great speakers with new and confirming updates, the opportunity to catch up with friends I have not seen in years, make new friends, and – as I teased after having lunch with “total strangers” – the opportunity to “earn 1 CEU at lunchtime” by sharing our varied experiences and learning from each other.
