Our 2016 Conference and Annual Meeting at Ponca state Park, Nebraska, was a great networking session, with members and guests from 17 states and one agency in Canada. The program included presentations by our 2016 Student Scholarship recipient, Kayla Key; as well as 2015 recipient Daniel Walker. Many attendees took home prizes from the raffle, which raised $250 for the scholarship fund.
