Well put Ben.
Thanks to all for a very rewarding and informative weekend.

I enjoyed putting people with the names on the list and meeting so many new 
friends.
I too was very inspired by Mark's speech during the banquet and appreciate 
his analogy. We each truly do have the driving control of our future.

thanks to all the long time federationists that made me feel very welcome, 
as this was my first year of attendance.
Look forward to meeting and working with more  members across the nation as 
the years pass.
thanks all for a great weekend!  Great job to all.

Congratulations  to Betty on the upcoming wedding!
