These are easy to miss in the everyday craziness of doing my job."

“Wow! What diversity of thought and action!”

“I don't live in Rome, but I am struck by the community pride and energy in the city. It seems there is a core group of people who are deeply passionate about the community. I find myself reflecting on the content of the conference, even now a week after the event. I'm so glad I found out about this event and I'm sure I'll be back!” - David Jahner, The College Board


“I was moved and inspired by all segments of Confluence.” 
- Elaina Beeman, Northwest Georgia Housing Authority


“I was invited by my boss so I went into it not knowing what to really expect. But I had a fantastic time and experience. Truthfully, I was sad when it ended.

“I was so impressed with what was offered!”
– Louise Branham, Habitat for Humanity Home Mart
