As a first time attendee and international delegate (Canadian) to the conference I must admit I was quite impressed. I don’t recall ever attending a conference with such a high caliber of professional and academic experience. The sessions were informative and enlightening. I particularly was intrigued with President Klinger’s comments during the opening plenary. It was rejuvenating to leave the conference with a stronger commitment to public service than when I arrived. To all who helped to make this a great success, job well done. I will definitely be returning next year.
