We only received 25 evaluation forms back, so we’ll do a better job of getting the word out next year!  We attempted to increase the amount of networking time, and most people believed that they were able to successfully network with others.  The opening address by FEMA, the CT Department of Housing presentation, the Washington Village presentation, and the MS4 support presentations were the most strongly liked.  Thank you to everyone who provided suggestions, we’ll try to provide programming that meets your needs in 2017!
