    Met people who I've wanted to identify and meet for many years.

    I really appreciated the opportunity to be a part of this event as a student. These events make me even more excited for the future in this career field.

    Great job as always. Kudos to PLRB!

    I was a first timer - I enjoyed the conference and thought it was very well put together.
