The MNASCA conferences bring together the right mix of people from the ASC industry and are very useful for networking and the latest on regulatory hot topics/changes.  The high quality of the speakers and seniority of other attendees are essential for gathering information and discussing issues we are faced with each day. Thank you for hosting such a wonderful and successful conference.
