First your very first event, I was impressed by the extra efforts you and your team have consistently made to cultivate a place where different voices and viewpoints came come together and discuss what each of us thinks about key topics of the day. Your efforts have expanded many horizons and turned acquaintances into friendships. Thanks for taking the lead in building this community.”
