  1. Super five star WOW conference on the beautiful SHU campus. Already inked my calendar for the 2017 IYWM conference.
    After today’s alumni business meeting, it was difficult to leave all that POSITIVE energy this 2016 conference generated. THANK YOU to all the IYWM committe volunteers and Mary Ross-Cox for your hard work in creating another magical success. 🙂

  2. Can I simply just say what a relief to discover somebody
    that really understands what they’re talking about online.
    You definitely realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    More people ought to check this out and understand
    this side of your story. It’s surprising you are not more popular
    since you surely have the gift.
