"I believe that it is important to be a part of a larger community, to take the opportunity to share what we've learned and learn from others. By submitting a proposal, our organization took a deep look at what we believe we bring in terms of value to the industry and that process, in and of itself, makes us better."
—WRMC 2016 Presenter Kate Farthing
