I look forward to working with you all again on the next edition.. Bob Swett.. , Florida Sea Grant, Boating and Waterway Management Program.. “The entire staff at the OCI was absolutely professional, efficient and entirely knowledgeable about every aspect of the planning and execution necessary for our conference.. Every step of the way I was consulted for the important items but was not burdened by any of the communications, which were all relevant and extremely helpful.. The final result was a wonderful conference at a beautiful venue with a very happy group of participants.. I could not have imagined all the work that was involved, and could never have attempted this on my own.. Every interaction we had was a complete pleasure and entirely professional..
