Check out what a few attendees told us about the conference:
The diversity of culture and age-in both audience members and speakers-was exciting, inspiring. NWSA is positioned to be an agent for change in our society.
- Judy Johnston, Ryder University
This conference was one of the most inspiring experiences in my young academic/professional life. I had a weekend-long glimpse of what I want to be doing for the rest of my life. Now, it sometimes keeps me up at night-filled with excitement-just knowing that there is a place for me.
- M. Shelly Conner, University of Illinois at Chicago
Save the date for next year's conference, November 11-14, 2010 in Denver, Colorado.
