Testimonials from Conference Participants:

  • I just spoke at my Union meeting this afternoon about the wonderful time I had attending your conference. I learned soo much but not enough. Thank you for providing the platform to make me hunger for more knowledge. You and your team organized every thing perfectly. The instructors and the speakers all did a wonderful job. Thank you and bless you.

  • Great BMIU conference. I’ve been taking classes and going to the BMIU conferences probably for the last eight years and this was really a great conference. They are all good, the food was excellent. I did not hear one negative remark from anything from over the weekend.
