    I've been attending PLRB Conferences for over 30 years and continue to enjoy attending and plan to do so in the future. Keep up the good work.

    It was a very positive experience and well worth the trip. I hope to attend future PLRB events.

    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.

    Great job of keeping up with the times with education and speakers. Look forward to next year.

    Overall a great experience and opportunity to gain knowledge
