"I have been attending the CAA conference for the past 5 years and it was absolutely wonderful that the 2015 conference was made accessible not only for me but the other hard of hearing delegates. BEING IN THE LOOP made it possible for me to access some great speakers on very informative topics. Thank you for the role you played in making the CAA conference accessible. IT was great to be IN THE LOOP", MB
