Hello Jennifer,

I want to let you and your staff know that everything at our February 9th AMCOA Conference was perfect! The rooms were lovely, our tech needs met, and the food was amazing! It was not your usual conference fare! Because there was a professional staff helping us at every step of the way, it made my job a lot easier and made the attendees feel welcome. I have gotten very favorable feedback from everyone that they were very impressed with the conference.

Again, thank you to you and your staff! We could not have done it without you.
Kerry McNally, Department of Higher Education
Dear Jennifer, I write to extend my deepest thanks for all that you and the entire staff did to support a very successful conference. Everyone who worked with us was committed to the conference and to assisting us every step of the way. Please extend our thanks to everyone for their professionalism, commitment, and assistance the entire day. I hope that one day we maybe be able to return because your service was impeccable
Peggy Maki, Department of Higher Education

Hi Carol

Thank you for all of your help on Opening Day.
The staff at ICC did a wonderful job of making
sure the event ran very smoothly.
It was a very successful day with both events.
Please share my appreciation to all of your staff
Patricia Demaras, Middlesex Community College
Wendy and I spent five nights at UMass ICC (July 4-8) and greatly enjoyed our stay. You have a clean, comfortable and friendly facility. Your reception desk and restaurant are staffed by courteous and knowleagable people. Cassandra (front desk) and Wendy (restaurant) were particularly helpful during our stay. We will certainly recommend UMass ICC to anyone we know who is planning a visit to the Boston area.
