"TLG WASN’T JUST GOOD—IT WAS PROBABLY THE BEST CONFERENCE I’VE EVER ATTENDED. THE EXPERIENCE GAINED AND CONNECTIONS MADE WERE INVALUABLE, AND IT WAS EXHAUSTIVE WITHOUT BEING EXHAUSTING. I ABSOLUTELY PLAN TO ATTEND AGAIN, AND I WOULD ENCOURAGE ALL OTHERS TO DO SO AS WELL."
- KARA SOKOL, DIRECTOR OF COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT, CITY OF FERNDALE, MI
