What Past Conference Goers Say

Don’t take our word on it, hear it from past attendees!

I have been in education for 37 years. I enjoyed the ambiance, the speakers, the breakout sessions and even the food. I have been to several national conferences but nothing like this one. I felt immersed in all the topics, they seemed to be all new and their content and the presenters were enlightening.

This was a wonderful conference. A good balance of workshops and activities. I especially liked the hands-on components woven into workshops and speaker addresses. Everyone I met from tech personnel to organizers, colleagues and service workers-were so friendly, helpful and down-to-earth.

This is by far the best conference I’ve attended to date. So many fabulous session options. I wish I could attend more. The conference was very well organized. I’m leaving motivated and excited to bring new ideas and programs back to my students. I’m very much looking forward to next year.

I was very impressed with the conference; especially the logistics. Everything was so well organized and easy to follow. The food and drink offerings, the number of session choices, and literally everything in between was well thought through. I found my time at BSH extremely valuable and I can’t wait to return next year.
