Yes, that’s right! The Questionmark 2010 Users Conference will take place March 14 -17 at the Hilton Miami Downtown.conf09

If you want to learn how to write better assessments, use Perception more effectively, discuss best practices, and soar up the learning curve at high speed, mark your calendar now and plan to attend!

conf09-3I’m looking forward to the conference because it is the ideal place for Perception users to get together and talk about mutual interests  and help each other move forward. It’s also an opportunity for our customers to meet with Questionmark staff and air their views about our products and services.

This conference is an outstanding professional development event. But don’t just take this from me. Here are just a few of the comments we received after the 2009 conference:

conf09-4“The Questionmark conferences are always full of excellent learning opportunities, chances for networking and tons of fun!”

“Now I have faces to go with contacts from other organizations and Questionmark staff.  Classy Conference!”

“As always, the conference proved to be the best conference I go to.”

“This was a great conference. I learned something at every session I attended.”

We will soon provide more information about the conference and issue a call for proposals. In the meantime, we hope Perception users from far and wide will start planning now to meet in Miami next March.
