Fall Conference A Huge Success!
ICCE wishes to thank the many individuals who helped to make the 2018 Fall Conference a success.
Centerville/Rathbun Chamber -Thank you to Natalie Close, Executive Director of the Centerville/Rathbun Chamber, for serving as our host. Natalie showcased the city of Centerville by taking us to one of the finest pizza restaurants in town, the “George & Nicks Pizza & Steakhouse”, a tour of the Appanoose County Historical Museum, and a boat cruise on the J & K boat on Lake Rathbun. Elvis was great! Thank you Natalie for all your work in hosting and assisting with the Conference. Please extend our great appreciation on to your board, membership and Mayor.
Honey Creek Resort - Thank you to the Honey Creek Resort for the work the staff did to make our stay and conference great. Marsha Whisler, it was a pleasure to work with you and your staff. The hotel is in a beautiful location to visit and stay at if you have never been there.
