A Thank You to all the Conference Participants
On behalf of Conference Chairman Jim Ferguson and the EcoMotion team, please allow me to thank you again for participating in what all agree was a hugely beneficial and timely conference.
Our feedback was heartening: The Palm Desert AB 811 Conference was well attended, praised as highly informative, and on time. We’re thrilled that you found it to be so useful. And we know it was a great networking opportunity.
Thanks again. We welcome any additional feedback that you may have, and we look forward to working with you in the future!
