Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend the in-person portion of CARCD’s 77th Annual Conference at The Lake Natoma Inn in Folsom, CA. We had an amazing turn out with higher attendance numbers than previous years. We would also like to give a big thank you to our amazing speakers and sponsors. We couldn’t have done this without everyone’s support and passion.
