This year's IES Annual Conference was notable for the high-powered keynote speakers. The Pittsburgh Section of the IES also did a great job hosting the conference and highlighting some of the best aspects of their beautiful city.
For me, the best part of the conference was again the pre-conference IES EP Workshop. The energy that starts here in a room peppered with first-time conference attendees is always amazing. The networking is fast and furious, and forever-bonds are formed between young and experienced professionals alike. Seriously, if you are not attending the Saturday workshop before the conference, contact me and tell me that you want to participate next year. It is the best!
