WSADCP thanks all those who were able to make it to the 2022 Conference, whether virtually or in-person. This was our first year doing a two-day conference and our first attempt at a hybrid option. We may have had some minor technical difficulties, but we will continue to hone our skills and work towards making 2023 even better! Thank you for supporting our efforts and we hope you learned some valuable information.
