  1. Thank you for these wonderful pictures and re-cap of the SEC-NCS meeting! It sounds like it was amazing! It also brought back such lovely memories of being with all of you last year. Congratulations to the award winners and presenters. I really wish I could have been there to see it.
    Love ❤️,
