2013 SDECE Conference is Over!
Despite the weather, we had a great turnout and great sessions.
Thanks to all who braved the elements to get here.
We may not have gotten everyone here, but most of you came, and we thank you! We had three high-quality keynote speakers, great breakout sessions, old and new exhibitors and sponsors, and lots of good company for the three days of the conference
Our Silent Auction collected over $1000 for SDAEYC Scholarships and for the SDHSA Endowment Fund. There were some great items, and we all had a lot of fun out-bidding each other.
If you weren't able to make it this year, we hope to see you next year in Sioux Falls, April 24th-26th, 2014. Mark it on your calendars.
