NGWA CEO Kevin McCray, CAE, succinctly summed up the success of the 2013 Summit with his statement — “I judge the value of a conference in part by the hallway conversations. They were many and robust in San Antonio.”

If you were unable to attend everything you wanted to — or had to miss the conference altogether — you can still do so…in a manner of speaking. Presentations from the 2013 Summit is now available online through the NGWA Event and Education Recordings Archive. While free to attendees, there is a nominal charge to others.
