ATTENDEE'S FEEDBACK

This was my first time attending the annual CALRO conference, and I found it to be very informative, insightful, and definitely worth my time! The guest speakers and instructors were very experienced, had a lot of expertise in their respective fields, and provided a lot of information to make my job a lot easier when dealing with the differences between labor actions and expressive activity! I would highly recommend anyone interested in enhancing their knowledge, as it relates to labor action and expressive activity, to attend this conference, especially for law enforcement supervisors and management.
