Did You Know?

Over 50% of the new faculty who attend the conference rate the conference excellent, the rest say it is very good.

"I was very appreciative of the opportunity for adjunct faculty to attend. That was a GREAT IDEA! Let's please do it again!!"

When asked what are the top highlights of the conference, 95% stated networking among colleagues is the number 1 highlight, followed by great sessions.

"I attend frequent business conferences, between 10-15 per year -- this outshined them all -- in terms of location, food, content and quality. And most importantly people who truly wanted to network, talk and share experiences. Excellent job!"
