Thank you for the invitation to attend the BEDC recently held in Frisco. As a Board member of an EDC and not being my chosen career, I wanted to express my appreciation for the varied speakers assembled and case studies discussed. It was informative, enjoyable and time well spent. I look forward to the next opportunity to broaden my knowledge of the EDC world in such a pleasant environment that you create.
