It takes a village, a family, a group of people coming together, whatever you want to call it, that is what happened this year. Many thanks to the APRIL Board members, staff, presenters and many many other friends and supporters out there who made this conference come together. There are of course a few people who we want to mention by name, but even if we didn't mention you, trust us, we noticed your support, we value you!
To all of our presenters, this conference could not happen without YOU!! We send you our gratitude, our thanks, Kudos, applause and our appreciation for sharing your time and knowledge with us.

A giant We Owe You! to Dayle McIntosh and Brittany Zazueta for her and her team helping us find local resources, jumping in as presenters, and being our all around go to person when while we were learning the lay of the land of that local area.
Thank you to Ka'borski with Sign Glasses for heading up our Closed Captioning, ASL Interpreters, Spanish Interpreter, and Spanish translation for our conference.
