The conference in Richmond was a great success. Many thanks to all who made it happen. The keynote speakers, who included Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell and Lucille O'Neal (mother of NBA star Shaquille), were outstanding, as were our many breakout sessions and exhibits. Year after year (the next one will be number 22!), the conference continues to be one of the best professional development opportunities in the country.

In this issue we bring our readers highlights of the general sessions, along with articles on the preconference workshops. Enjoy—and keep up the good work!
