We are grateful for our sponsors who made this event possible. Thank you to all who attended. We send out a special thank you to Paul Marcoux, who also attended on the occasion of this anniversary. Paul recognized the need for trained professionals to work in the Mission Critical field, and through his vision, jump-started the CMCO program by obtaining the funding and the support of the local community colleges.
I hope all enjoyed and learned from the diverse presentations and took advantage of the fun and networking opportunities.
