Over 110 members, guests, and sponsors attended the three-day meeting. The opening reception took place at the Riverside Hotel as the attendees gathered for a sunny patio meet and greet. The meeting kicked off the next day with a full agenda of presentations by members and sponsors as well as committee reports, and updates.
