(Spontaneous) comments from some attendees:
Dr M: “That was fantastic! Everything was great. The speakers, the info itself, the venue, the food, the sponsors, the gifts!!!!!!!!(…) It really really brings people together. I don't think there has ever been an opportunity for so much interaction among vets who semi-knew or didn't know each other in the LVVMA. (…) You have such a rare combo of qualities of expertise, teacher, social connector, organizer, persuader, etc. Thank you so much for using them for all of our benefit!”
Dr K: “I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciated the conference today. The venue was great, the acoustics were great; you could hear the speakers very well and see the slides. The speakers were well versed and interesting, the smaller number of people made for a more intimate feeling to the whole thing.
(…) I really appreciate information I can use. (…) Love the interactive style of the talks and audience participation. Hope you have another one in the works!”
Sheri with ProVetLogic, a sponsor: “Thank you for yesterday's conference. I found it most interesting and fun too.”
