Teresa Hartnett speaks about the benefits of networking at the Annual Conference, implementing best practices, and engaging with academic and administrative change leaders.


I was able to make excellent and personal connections with participants and I really got a strong sense of community in this group. People went out of their way to help, offer advice, and [help me] make links with others I would benefit from meeting.
