Thank you for once again planning, organizing, and executing a memorable and educational USOA Annual Conference.

I came away from the conference far more informed than before, of the role and responsibilities of the ombudsman. Some of the sessions I attended were real eye-openers and equipped me with the knowledge of how to perform my job with greater professionalism and understanding of how to treat the problems some complainants face. Again, thank you very much.
