NACUFS April 2014

April 14, 2014 by  

Dear Ms. Clarke:

As the Conference Chair, I would like to personally thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to serve as the opening session speaker at the 2014 NACUFS Southern Regional Conference held March 24-26, 2014 here on campus. We hosted more than 200 attendees from over 80 businesses and Universities for three days full of information, guest speakers, networking and delicious food!

Your presence and message helped set the tone for the conference and welcomed the entire Southern Region to Oklahoma State University. I particularly enjoyed your focus on being “persistently positive”, always being an updraft and not a down draft, using mental manipulation to put a positive twist on draining situations, and of course your twist on the Golden Rule!

It was truly an honor to have you be a part of our conference. This event would not have been a success without the positive message and inspiration you brought to the group. On behalf of the entire NACUFS organization, I deeply appreciate your contribution to and support of the college and University dining community and hope you found the conference to be a beneficial opportunity to share your valuable life lessons.
