In their Words
"[Our event] was a great success—there were quite a number of people who said we should have it there every year! Monona Terrace was perfectly suited to our group, the support people were great, and the attendees loved the location with the lake and convenient hotels and restaurants. Thank you, Ann Shea and your group, for your role in making that happen."
 —Thad Walker, UW-Madison, Division of Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics
