“I enjoyed the energy of attendees – we shared common goals, common challenges, and the desire to be better. It’s refreshing and rewarding to collaborate to find solutions and best practices together.”

“Generally speaking, community college families are all “on different ends of the same boat.” Most institutions face similar issues and it was inspiring to see others share best practices that everyone can use to enhance the educational opportunities we provide to our communities.”

“There is such a positive vibe at this conference, with everyone willing and trying to share ideas in order to make us all better teachers. A spirit of collaboration and community pervades each session.”
