What are Members Saying About Last Year's Conference?


Attendees of our previous conferences had this to say:



2011 Attendees

I had an AMAZING time at conference! Cyndee and Larry do a FANTASTIC job of putting together a conference that will invigorate you and get you fired up about your choice of professions. I had such a great time putting faces to names I've known for years, and it was also so exciting meeting people for the first time. If you've never been to conference, you MUST start making your plans to go next year. L Sees, Euless, TX

The knowledge [you gain] is worth so much, the networking is worth so much, and the feeling after being at conference is PRICELESS! T Marohn, White Lake, MI

It's great networking with peers and learning all their tricks of the trade. Even though I have been in business for 11 years I still learn from networking. Great Conference this year Cyndee, loved Don Self and Robert Liles. Awesome session with Ann Brunk on her Administrative Processes. L Bugsalewicz, Chicago, IL



"I, want to thank Cyndee, Larry and Krystal for all of their hard work in making this year's conference such a success. The speakers were great and the subject matter was timely. I enjoyed meeting everyone and look forward to seeing everybody again next year!" S. Hokes, OH

"I cannot begin to tell you how much I learned and how many valuable contacts I made. I think it is especially important for those of us who are new to the business to attend. The whole issue of reimbursement can seem very daunting if you're new, but meeting the more experienced professionals and mentors really gave me a boost of confidence. Of course, I also had a good time, and I'm really looking forward to next year!" J. Lazo, TX

"Thank you Cyndee, Larry & Krystal...what a great conference!! Each time I have attended I learn more and more...will definitely make it a priority to attend future conferences." M Lang, CO

"Cyndee and Larry, thank you so much for your dedication to AMBA and your efforts to keep AMBA members moving in the right direction. Thanks for the great courses you offer and for the great speakers and vendors who attend each year. Also, thank you for encouraging us to reach out and network with one another so that we can offer assistance to each other throughout the year. This was my second conference and it was great. I'm looking forward to next year's conference already!"
Tami Van Tassell, MO


"WONDERFUL yet again! I have so much "homework" to start on and look forward to next years' already."

Randi Tapio, MN


"Larry and Cyndee put together a wonderful Conference yet again. Hearing Robert Liles, Trish, Mike Edmonds, and Robin was awesome, not to mention the others. It's nice when other billers that have built their business up can share their experience. The auction was a great as usual... Love it! I know [how much effort goes into planning the conference] it was AWESOME. Thanks for everything."

Lisa Paoli, IL


"What a phenomenal conference! Thank you for all that you do for the members of AMBA - you're incredible and we truly appreciate you" Ann Brunk, CO


"Thank you to Cyndee and Larry for another wonderful conference! I just spent some time going over some of the business aspects with my husband and discussing my goals to grow my business and steps to get there. These conferences are a wonderful way to "put it all together" with PRACTICAL information that we can put to use first thing Monday morning! LOVED IT! I just want to add that I attended my first AMBA conference 2 years ago and was totally blown away by the amazing content which was immediately useful and beneficial. I was looking to recharge my batteries for revamping my business and it really did the trick!  IF you have just started your business, are wanting to start one, want to make it more successful and profitable, or you just need your batteries recharged-- then YOU SHOULD ATTEND! Not only is the content top-notch, but you will have opportunities for networking with other billers and vendors that you just don't get in other venues. You already know the awesome benefits of membership--now imagine that on STEROIDS! If there is anyway you can make it, please do--you won't regret it!"

Cheri Freeman, TX


"...this [2009] conference was the best. I had more opportunities to meet with other billers and share, it was great. I look forward to next year."

Anita Wells, OR


"I was very pleased with the conference! Thank you so much Cyndee and Larry for the hard work you put into it and to all those that were a part of the planning process. I really believed I got my money's worth and much more. I was so glad to finally meet everyone that I have spoken to over the past two years I have been associated with AMBA. It is so nice to put a face with a voice/email. I look forward to seeing you all at next year's conference."'

Rey Stafford, TX

Heather Killian

"I would like to thank Cyndee, Larry and the AMBA staff for a fantastic conference. One of the best I've ever been to. Speakers were great, course content was informative and timely. I also appreciated some differing views to get the old brain juices flowing again. One sign of a good conference is if I come back to the office all pumped up and energized again. I certainly feel that way now!"
Steve Housberg, NY

"Whew...what a great conference!! Kudos to Cyndee, Larry, and all of those who helped make this event so successful! I have been in this business a very long time (over 35 years altogether!!), but have never left a conference feeling so "overwhelmed" with new ideas and great information for both my own business and my that of my client's."
Kathy Walker, CA

"Cyndee, thank you for such a wonderful conference. You did a fabulous job and everything and everyone who spoke did a very good job. It really was a success and I believe everyone learned a great deal."
Carmen Jacobsen, ID


"To the Weston's and their staff - thank you! You possess leadership skills and expose them daily in your relentless efforts to educate, support and promote others - often times above your own interests. Through your words and actions we all have learned what it takes to make things happen in 'the business'. I extend my heartfelt thanks to the AMBA Staff, their guests, and members."
Kenneth G. Hagans, OH


"I walked away with my wheels spinning, wanting to offer my providers with more and feeling like I have more to provide. I was excited to get back to work with renewed energy to go out and get more business. Thank you so much for a great conference!!"
