“We were very pleased to have Neal, Dan and Tom serving on the Masters Conference Advisory Cabinet this past year,” said Marilyn Gladden, Global Client Relations Director for the Masters Conference. “Their experience, insight and connections were invaluable when deciding on curriculum and selecting our expert speakers.”
