The SECO staff program is unparalleled in quality and scope.
This will be my 44th consecutive SECO and my fondest memory was in 1980 when I sat on Gerald Thomas's hotel bed surrounded by Joel Byars, Wayne Brown and other SECO friends and watched the "Miracle on Ice" when the US Ice Hockey team defeated Russia for the Gold Medal. I have brought several staff members each and every year because the SECO staff program is unparalleled in quality and scope.
