AAIT 7th Annual Conference

Yaay, we did it again!!! 

This year's conference was such a blast! We would like to thank all of our attendees for coming. We hope you all enjoyed the conference as much as we (the board) did.
We would also like to thank all of our great sponsors for supporting us again this year. We would not be able to throw this shin-dig without you!
Last, but most certainly not least, we would like to express our deep gratitude and give another big round of applause (this time virtual) to the absolutely fabulous speakers and panelists who presented this year! Every presentation was extremely informative and engaging! Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedules to come down to Atlanta and share your expertise with us. 
Finally, if you would like to see little snippets of the conference, please feel free to check out our twitter page. I (Amanda Williams) live-tweeted the event all day long!
