Nevada County Recognition!

Steve Monaghan, County Chief Information Officer had this to say about the TechForum2012:

. . . The event was really fantastic and I received all positive feedback from the county executives that attended.  It was like candy to my technical team and  they and Supervisor Scofield greatly enjoyed the 1:1 session afterwards with Rick, that was truly  wonderful.  I look forward to your next event.

Thanks you everyone! It was really a blast. It was so well attended.
Although Rick was an amazing speaker, he wasn’t my favorite part of the day.
It was when three students came up after his presentation and asked for his
autograph and a picture with him.

This event changed these kids’ lives!!
They will reach higher and do better because of the efforts you have put
into our students.

You should all be very proud of yourselves. Thank you for
having the vision and foresight to elevate our children. Great job all
around!

George Rebane writing at Ruminations has a summary of events and some photos of the standing room only crowd.  I will post more pictures on this blog when they are available.

I want to thank Laura van den Berg for her leadership and incredible energy and her husband Luuk for his support. Other volunteers included Mitch Valentine and Jo Ann Rebane who helped with welcoming and crowd control and of course George Foster for guarding the money.

It was a great community team effort. Thank you everyone!
