What are people saying about the Watershed Congress?*
really enjoyed the conference this year. Every year it amazes me that you are
able to put together such a great program time and time again. . . . Thanks for
all of the work you did to make the Watershed Congress a success. I was able to
pick up quite a few ideas. . . . I use the conference for CEUs for my license
and learn new things. . . . My compliments on a well-run program - again. The
support for me as a presenter was excellent. . . . Saturday's conference was
terrific. Another job well done! . . . What an amazing event you organized. And
with the news now emerging about the William Penn Foundation’s new watershed
project, I feel kind of like an insider to the information. . . . I’m honored
that I was included as a presenter. . . . Once again, an excellent congress.
Good work! Great speakers!”
