I want to say a huge thank you and congratulations to your team for putting together SUCH an excellent program. For a first-time conference, you hit it way, way out of the park!! You made me want to be part of the team! Thank you for the gift of renewed energy, resources, and learning!
I liked how it was a collaboration between two organizations, a good example. I like that many women were presenters, so it wasn’t all just men like me. [...] I appreciate the kindness and humility that all the ARAT organizers showed. Really a great job!
