"I really enjoyed this year's conference. Fascinating and creative topics that are very relevant to my job. Thank you to all of the committee members and speakers. You all did a fantastic job."

Linda T

"Michael Cheng was an excellent teacher. His explanations were relevant, detailed and very good. I like his teaching style. I believe it is important to apply the knowledge- give good examples- and apply to real life. Michael did this. I believe there is too much theory and not enough application with the other teachers. Kevin Cross was also very good. He is a very good teacher- keeps your attention and makes it relevant. I love his teaching style."
