What Past Attendees Have Said

I wanted to start today by thanking all of you for such a wonderful conference.  Everyone you arranged for us to meet, pre-, during and post-, were welcoming and enthusiastic, truly remarkable representatives of Louisiana. The itineraries were excellent (we covered a LOT of ground!) and it was definitely a "target rich" environment for a travel writer.

One other thing... This was only my second NATJA conference, but it confirmed what I have come to feel since I joined a little over a year ago, namely, that this is a very warm, supportive, and inclusive organization.  I know from experience that tone is set from the top down.  You have created something special and should be very proud of this accomplishment. I can hardly wait for Huntsville!
