Schneider, Robert Sette, and
Veronika Demichelis, who were
elected directors for a three-year
term. We had a record number of
voters-almost 30% higher than
we typically see. Thanks to all the
candidates who were willing to run
and serve the Association. Here are

Conference Wrap-Up

W

e did it! Thanks to the more
than 1,500 participants,
presenters, and volunteers who
made ATA's 61st Annual Conference
a reality.
Of particular note and thanks,
ATA President-Elect and Conference
Organizer Madalena Sánchez Zampaulo
put in hundreds of hours in shaping the
conference-from selecting sessions to
finding volunteers to managing egos.
(Anytime you have this many people, in
addition to the anxieties of the current
times, diplomacy and people skills are
paramount.) ATA President Ted Wozniak
also led us through the challenges of
moving from an in-person event to a
fully virtual format, offering his insights
based on his two years of overseeing the
Annual Conference.
I would also like to thank
the hardworking, devoted ATA
Headquarters staff-Roshan Pokharel,
Mary David, Adrian Aleckna, Caron
Bailey, Trish Boward, Teresa Kelly, Kirk
Lawson, Jamie Padula, Jeff Sanfacon,
and Cathy Taguding. They did a
tremendous job in transitioning to a
fully virtual conference in just three
months and making it all happen.
Surveys: The Annual Conference is built
on the successes and lessons learned
from previous years. The key driver for
any change is the feedback we receive
from attendees. Thanks to everyone who

Robert Sette: 337 (Elected)

took the time to complete the Overall
Conference Survey. Your comments and
suggestions will definitely be helpful as we
plan for ATA62!
Session Recordings: If you attended
the conference, be sure to go back to
the conference portal and listen to
any sessions you may have missed.
The recordings will be online for at
least six months. If you didn't attend
the conference, recordings of the
educational sessions and Advanced
Skills and Training Day sessions will be
available for sale. Watch ATA Newsbriefs
for more information.
Looking Ahead to ATA62: For the
planners, mark your calendar. ATA62
is set for October 27-30, 2021 in
Minneapolis, Minnesota. Although
we're planning to meet in person,
we'll definitely have a virtual
component as well.
