For the more than 1,000 who were able to join us in Orlando- thank you for attending the Making Waves, CASE III Annual Conference. To the conference leadership team, Kudos for bringing this fine conference to such a successful conclusion. For those of you who were unable to attend, I wanted to share what an energetic experience it was.
Our plenary sessions were inspiring, motivational, funny and engaging. From Scott Stratten who opened the conference helping us "unmarket" to John Hill who helped us unlock the potential in LinkedIn for our operations. In between there were too many highlights to mention, enough said.
I thank you for being a part of CASE III, where your participation and membership matter. I welcome your feedback, and I look forward to you joining us in our volunteer effort to advance our profession.
