I got to meet people and really get to know them and learn what makes them tick,” he said. “The ability to connect with people is what the ALR is about — sharing ideas, best practices, learning from each other and getting to know people in a setting that is inviting. It’s an inspiring and uplifting event where people can pull what they need to from a business aspect but they can also pull from a personal motivation in terms of what they’re doing in giving back to the community.
