Some final thoughts: I enjoy collecting the survey responses from the meeting.  This year everyone said the meeting met their expectations and most said they were at least “very likely” to attend next year.

There is always some constructive criticism and we take that to heart because even it is positive.  More of the positive comments [the last one is my personal favorite – I’m working on my acceptance speech]:

This is the best-organized event I attend that delivers a great deal of information in a short time.

The whole event had a pleasant atmosphere that I really appreciated

As a first time participant, I found it useful and learned a lot.  I would like to return again next year and would recommend the event to others.

Excellent event this year, I enjoyed the education, entertainment, networking and food.  All top notch…

Thanks to all who made this one of the best run meetings of its type I’ve ever attended.  I learned a lot, enjoyed the networking, and had a lot of fun at the same time.

If there was a Grammy for best use of sound effects during a technical presentation Carl would win it.
