Taking our header from the deadpan song that Jessica Holmes included in her hilarious performance at the closing luncheon, this Super Conference was indeed happy, happy, happy, happy, happy.... Preliminary figures indicate that there were some 4,700 of you taking part, yet another new record.

The evaluations have, on the whole, been remarkable. Our very great thanks and respect go out to the 350 speakers who put so much effort into sharing expertise, experience and fresh ideas with us. There was excitement and praise right down to the closing minutes.

The planning team for Super Conference 2007 hopes you were able to build a conference perfect for you from all the programs and activities developed over the past year for this unique annual event.
