WIRSA 2022 was a big success. We were able to raise money for student development, plan for conferences to come, and network. It is fair to say that everyone who attended got something valuable out of it. It could have been attending an education section, hearing from the keynote speakers, or talking with professionals in the same field. At any rate, the inviting culture of recreation was surely demonstrated. The vendors displayed on our website made much of this conference possible and we are so grateful! If we don't see you before, then we will surely meet again at WIRSA 2023!
