Donna and Kevin are the ultimate administration team, and put together one of the finest conferences we've ever supported. From the food to the workshop leaders to the keynote to the overall movement from event to event, they offered a flawless experience. Bowers was able to reach out to a population we never would've been able to hit on our own, and with 140+ attendees for a first conference, we believe they've established a marque that will provide quality exposure for years to come. Huzzah!
