Hello NASRA! As this year’s conference planning chair I want to say that I am so excited to see everyone in Colorado. Colorado has been home to me for the last 9 years, and I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. Between all the sunshine, the perfect cool summer nights, the crisp fall mornings, and the powder-like snow, this place really has it all. I hope that you’ll come early or stay late to check out everything there is to do; whether you prefer a trek through the mountains or having a a drink on one of Golden’s quaint patios, it’ll be worth your time here. Thank you for bringing the conference to Colorado!
