I also really enjoyed working with the Utah hearing officers and mediators. I got to do the training of these folks this year and, as always, I really enjoyed working with them. My fellow hearing officers and mediators see the world from a perspective that is a bit different from the advocates for either side. I'm glad that I got to spend some time with them.
The sessions were packed full of information and the conference materials should be a valuable resource. As usual, some of my favorite moments involved conversations with my colleagues in more informal settings. You know who you are.
I'll have more on the substantive sessions from the Utah and Wyoming conferences in coming weeks.
The Utah Institute is a great conference. If you ever get a chance, please attend it.
