"My service with the ESDA has been a tremendous opportunity to develop leadership skills and learn from experts worldwide. I am always impressed by not only the technical knowledge of those I work with, but also the caliber of their character. The ESDA community greets newcomers with open arms and makes them feel welcome and valued. I think it is this personal touch that keeps people coming back to the ESD Symposium year after year."
