Very good presenters, well thought out pace and length of presentations, good start and end times, upbeat organizers, very enjoyable two days. Thank you! —Louise, St. Albert
Congratulations on an AMAZING conference. It was well-attended and heard great comments throughout the weekend about the sessions that people were taking in. Putting together a large conference such as the one you did this weekend is a HUGE amount of work. Please pass on my congratulations to all of the people on your committee.... The syllabus was exceptionally well done..., I can only imagine how much time went into putting the syllabus together. There were all kinds of things going on behind the scenes that very few people see. The fact that very few people see them means that those things are seamless without impact to the participants..., that and great comments on the sessions that people were attending are the marks of a very successful conference. KJUDOS to you and your team. —Marion, Edmonton
... An amazingly well organized conference! Congratulations to the committee on a job well done and to everyone (especially Red Deer Branch for the decorations and signage) who contributed towards its success. The syllabus is remarkable. It'll be a big selling point to help entice people to attend future AGS conferences. Whoever put the enormous number of hours into it, thank you very, very much for this incredible resource. —Janine, Camrose
Great Convention! —Raymond, Calgary
The hotel venue certainly provided lots more room than we had at the previous convention site. Sure those with mobility issues were happy for that. Nonetheless, the organizers of the convention are to be congratulated on a great convention. All your hard work paid off. Thank you! —Sharon, Edmonton
Help us plan and serve forthcoming conferences and workshops. AGS would like you to make a quick evalution limited to ten questions letting us know what prompted you to attend using our online or print survey form.
