Thank you for holding such an excellent event.  It was quite professionally done and the caliber of research presentations and posters were quite good.  - Ellen Silva, General Mills

I thought the overall quality of the presentations, posters, and research were very good.  I like the way the event was organized and I thought the venue was outstanding.  - Tom Burns, Dow Chemical

The event was a success.  I know it took a lot of work; thank you for your effort.  - Brian Hogg, ExxonMobil

I thought it was an excellent, first class event. The presentations were very good (though I could not stay for all) and the posters were first-rate. Great venue. Good food. The committee was very cordial and professional.  I honestly have no suggestions for improvements in the future.  - R. Scott Osborne, CoE Research Operations
