"Nice conference. As usual, I particularly enjoyed the mobile workshops--it is nice to get-out and see other communities and projects!"

"I feel APA-IL conference has been doing a better job of having a foundation of the core practicing
skillsets that define planning, and then threading in the cool shiny new stuff."

"I thought the scheduling was very well done with good breaks between sessions. This allowed for more time to spend time with the vendors and socialize, which
was great."
