2017 OSECE IPS Conference Was A Success!

The OSECE IPS Annual Conference for 2017 was a huge success! We want to thank all of our presenters, the Oregon Garden Resort, our team, and the OCEACT team for all of their help- it wouldn’t have been possible without each and every one of you!  Between the online registrations and sign in sheets we estimate that there were approximately 240 people in attendance. That’s our biggest conference yet! You should have received an emailed survey request. Please let us know what you enjoyed about the conference and what suggestions you might have for future changes. We really do read every comment and appreciate the feedback. If you are looking for materials used by presenters, we are posting them here as soon as they come in.

Thank you for attending and for your enthusiasm and camaraderie. That is always the best part of the conference each year! And, we are already looking forward to being able to get together again next year.
