Turn Out the Lights....The Party's Over

Rather than bore you with how much I enjoyed seeing everyone this past week at DSAIA 2012 or how tired my feet are, I thought I would give a voice to our attendees.  See what others thought of our event:

[Regarding Dr. Bev Browning’s sessions]  “I just want to say THANK YOU!!  She was amazing and I now have confidence to search for and fill out some grant applications!  She is a wonderful woman, great presenter and just really made things seem possible.  (not easy…but possible)”

“It was such a great feeling to know that my Board member (who paid for herself) was going to have a great time and that it would be worth her time and money.  And it was! She loved it.  All the members of the committee were warm and helpful and communicated how much every member was valued and an important part of a larger community.”

 “I hope you all enjoyed and benefitted from the DSAIA Conference as much as I did.  I was honored to be asked to speak.  The opportunity to be a part of such a committed and caring group of folks pleased me enormously in advance.  The folks I met at the conference itself continued my wholly positive impression.  It was great to be a part of such a committed group of folks with a single mission – to help create a better life for those with Down syndrome.”

“Having arrived home safe and sound, I just wanted to take this opportunity to say ‘Thank you’ for a fantastic conference.  I do believe it was, as I heard many people say, the best EVER!”  

“I just wanted to say that, while I have been to many great DSAIA conferences, this year was somehow tangibly different: crisper, smoother, even more professional, and, yes, even more fun!” 

I want to tell you what WONDERFUL time I had at the conference. I learned so much and came away with lots of ideas for our organization. -Barb Waddle, The Upside of Downs of Northeast Ohio
