I had an opportunity to attend Alliance South on Thursday, May 22nd, 2014 in College Park, Georgia. For those who were unable to attend, you missed an exceptional opportunity. The Matchmaking Sessions were powerful with each organization representative eager to help, support and guide. Exhibit booths served as additional resources outside of the Matchmaking Sessions. The morning breakout sessions were 'second to none', with each diverse speaker, sharing his or her story on how they were able to successfully break through countless racial, economic and cultural barriers. Attendees walked away engaged, enlightened and empowered. The staff was friendly, helpful and professional. I look forward to attending the next event!
