The AOC Annual Conference, November 19-21 was a huge success!
Many, many thanks to all who participated in one of the best AOC Annual Conferences ever. And there have been quite a few. Our special gratitude goes out to all of our county commissioners and county judges who came this year and to our many vendors who gave us an opportunity to meet and greet them. We had many wonderful panels and we look forward to getting your feedback. If you are a commissioner or judge, please check your email for the evaluation form that went out over the weekend.
