Here's What Past Attendees Have Said

  • I was impressed that despite the youth of the organization, BCONE has contacts in numerous states and at high levels of environmental organizations.

  • The presenters were up to date with the very latest information.

  • The sessions were great, but the post-session networking was probably the best.
