-Susan Au Allen, National President & CEO
  • Have to say, that I remain somewhat overwhelmed by attending USPAACC, my first one! In 30+ years in the staffing industry, attending more conferences of every stripe I can imagine, I have never attended a conference quite like USPAACC. Where do I start? The spirit, the positive energy, the we can do notion of all things possible. And of course the speakers sharing their lives, their stories that make us what we are as a country, as a people, as human beings. I have never been so moved. And then there is you. What to say about what you have created? It is truly amazing; you are truly amazing! It is you that I thank! Can’t wait for next year.
