We extend a heartfelt thank you to all the members who sponsored the conference, organized sessions, planned receptions and added many special touches to each day. We value each speaker who carefully prepared and presented their knowledge to benefit others.And we appreciate every one of you who attended the conference to learn, share ideas and wisdom, and bring your enthusiasm back to the field.

Together we have taken the next step toward supporting students in overcoming adversity.
