Hot Springs Connection

“The amount of collaboration was inspiring, and I believe it got us all reenergized to continue to push for excellence in our field. Meeting people who have the same challenges and growing pains as we do makes us remember that it is worth it and provides a network of support that is invaluable. The only thing I would change next year is increasing the amount of time we have together. I am looking forward to a continued network of symbiotic relationships.”

~Scott Whitaker, Director of Operations, Glen Ivy Hot Springs in Corona, CA
