Thank you for joining us for our 5th Anniversary celebration! We certainly hope you enjoy the conference. Here’s to Education, Collaboration, and Community!

Remember, we don’t take ourselves too seriously and you shouldn’t, either! To quote the old motto of another collaborative community, "We trick into learning with a laugh".

We wish you both laughter and learning - and lots of both!
