Listen To What People Have To Say About the Symposium
I attended my first symposium by Rhea Jezer in 2008. I missed last year's due to health issues (I take better care of buildings than myself.) I hope to make the next 36. These days are truly inspirational. When you leave you know that you can make a difference and I am sure many have. After going the first year you're energized both coming and going. Ms. Jezer was recognized with two significant awards for her efforts last year.
I was there one year when an entourage of university students filled two long tables. That was while I poured a cup of coffee and briefly chatted with Garry Brown from the PSC. Then I went back to my seat behind six friendly members of the DEC. I eased into that seat just in time to enjoy someone teasing by Frank Murray from NYSERDA. Kit Kennedy has been the monitor each time I went and you would swear she was leading an orchestra.This is the event to attend. You can put faces and personalities the names of leaders in our field and walk out the door feeling a part of it all. It is great. The Y2K was a non-event, The Mayan calendar deal was a flop. This symposium has been the only consistently successful human event of the millennium... . I have spent one day enjoying it and 364 days waiting for the next each year. Get there if you can."
