It was a grand affair in every sense of the word that allowed one to learn. As a frequent participant in similar gatherings, I am often stricken by the fact that one leaves a conference "empty" of any effective discourse, since one tends to hear the same messages over and over again. This was different. For the first-time in a long-time, I can honestly state that I left invigorated.
