Bye-bye to Philadelphia

It is with bittersweet memories that we turn our backs on the 106th Annual ECA Convention. There were so many wonderful sessions, interactions, and... deliberations. There were also some sad losses and missed colleagues. We will offer you a summary of the happenings from Philadelphia in the coming weeks. For now, we are still gathering data from your surveys, individual comments, and social media. Please continue to send those to us so that we have a strong sense of what served our members well and what elements that we need to strengthen for the future. We'll talk soon!
