Past attendee commentary: "I am so happy to have attended the APEX/ASTM workshop that you (Johanna) gave to the GMIC Northern California Chapter this past November. It was essential for me personally/professionally so that I had the tools necessary ... and the "nudge" to prepare/organize my first Level 1 APEX Compliance event! Thank you so much Johanna! The Chicago attendees are so lucky to have you!" Diane Hertstein, CMP,
