Festival Conference 2023!

Worcester State University
June 23-25, 2023

[Area 1’s event was] the best festival I’ve been a part of…it really had a National Seminar feel, but was much more personal and so professionally done! Thanks for making me feel at home and for taking such good care of me while I was there! I’m now an Area 1 fan!!
