What attendees are saying:

“I just wanted to reach out to you and OutReach at Auburn Montgomery to let you know the 2016 Admin Professionals Conference was absolutely fabulous.  I hope this training conference will continue on an annual basis.  I took away lots of tips that were helpful to me professionally and personally.  It was a WIN, WIN!“

 “It was my first conference and I thoroughly enjoyed it!  The presenters were fantastic, and I will definitely be attending again in the future”

“I really enjoyed myself!!! The speakers were AWESOME, the food was AWESOME, and the Networking was AWESOME.  Thanks for putting together such an AWESOME Administrative Professionals Conference.  Not only did I get some great tips, but I have already started using them.  I can’t wait for next year.”

“THANK YOU for a wonderful conference.  I really enjoyed it an appreciate all that is put into doing this for us.  Looking forward to seeing what you will have in store for us next year.  You have your work cut out for you to try to top this one next year! “

“I was expecting a long day of possibly not very interesting information, but that is not at all what we got.  The conference was interesting, engaging, and comfortable.  The speakers were all awesome and very relatable.  We got the feeling that it could be any one of us on that stage because for the most part they were telling our story.  They were giving us solutions, options, and ways to succeed from their experiences.  Again, very powerful, very satisfying.  I thoroughly enjoyed the day. “
