“Just wanted to thank all of you for your hard work and dedication! You really went above and beyond to make this a great 1st convention for me.”
“I am a member of the ASD. My wife and I attended the convention this year in
Saratoga Springs. We really enjoyed the classes and facilities. This was our
first convention and hope that it is the first of many more. We attended
the 2 full day workshops, foundation and beyond the basics. We learned a
lot and enjoyed meeting everyone. We both hope that the convention was
successful from the ASD standpoint as well. Thank you for providing such a
nice and well done event. We really enjoyed the town also. There was plenty to do and see. Thanks for doing such a good job! ”
