This conference was SO rich in content. Every session took the information far beyond my knowledge base…it was not just complaining about too many festivals, it was learning from them. It was not just “you should use social media”, it was the deepest dive into how to use it well that I’ve ever been a part of. More so than ever before, I felt like I was learning brand new information, especially with the emergency preparedness info. I felt completely inadequate and loved it.

This was the first time I had the opportunity to attend the 2016 Management Conference and it was an excellent experience! The seminars were extremely relevant and informative, the food was great and the live Emergency Planning Simulation was awesome. Who doesn’t love a real life tornado drill? Another great job IAFE staff!
