2021 attendees commented… 
 
“The sessions were on topics relevant to my region. There were several sessions related to life skills and rural economic development. There was at least 10 times the value of the registration fee.”  
 
“Amazing what ACT has embarked upon in helping in every area of academia and workforce development. Their content is on point and relevant to today's needs and tomorrow’s.”
