“Smith Management Group was excited to see so many of our board members attend the seminar and engage with the speakers and each other,” stated Roger Kinney, SMG president. “The third session was a great opportunity to elevate participates’ knowledge and understanding of many industry topics and concerns as well as provide them with the most up-to-date information available.
