I think the whole week went really well! I appreciate all you did for it. I think that IEW will be a new tradition for us, so you'll be hearing from me about it again next year! Thanks again for all of your advice, help and support. --

Thank you for everything regarding the services your office provided. Lisa did an outstanding job of taking care of all the little details and went above and beyond the call to ensure a smooth operation. Our attendees absolutely raved over the food and the professional, smooth and seamless orchestration of events!

This was my 1st experience dealing with the staff at the University of Maryland and I am impressed. I am grateful for the work you put in and your flexibility and desire to work with us to make this a successful experience

I want to express our appreciation for the excellent service your staff provided in running the NCCC conference at the Stamp Student Union. The committee was full of praise for their work and the attendees gave us rave reviews for the facilities and service.

The meeting was a major scientific success but also a major logistical and organizational success and much of the credit can be attributed directly to our having worked with your office. Our thanks for a job that was more than just well done-you folks were fantastic!
