Read what others have to say about attending a National Convention:

"Wow. The conference was truly amazing! I've come away feeling not only energized but educated, both on USAU infrastructure and strategy as well as other Affiliate best practices! The USAU Staff were all incredibly friendly, helpful and accessible, despite having other responsibilities associated with the tournament... You guys rock. Thank you so much! I can't wait for next year already."
Jacksonville Ultimate League


"Thank you for hosting the US Open Affiliate convention. I gained a lot of insight from the presentations and discussions and am excited about how DiscNY can implement many of the ideas! It was clear that much of the convention's success was due to Josh's energy, which was impressive to see."


"First of all I want to thank you and all the staff for everything during this trip. It was really an "ultimate" experience. It will surely contribute to the development of the sport here in Panama where we hope we can put into practice some of the things we learned the past week."
Ultimate Panama


"I just want to thank you and USAU your hospitality during the last weekend. It was a great and productive experience and we watch great games and met amazing people."
Ultimate Mexico


"The convention was really an awesome experience and I learned a lot. Most of all, I've been more fired up than usual about working and have been tackling some big projects here in Indiana, one of which I'll be excited to share with you when I'm done. I think it will be a useful resource to a lot of others. I can't wait for next year."
Indiana Ultimate Federation


"Just wanted to follow up from this weekend and say thank you for coordinating a great convention side of the US Open! While we were only able to attend Friday's agenda, we were very happy with the presentations and opportunity to understand the structuring plans USAU has looking towards joining the olympics. Meeting with some league and disc association reps helped us understand the models that need to start popping up in each state."
Aero Ultimate, Michigan


"Absolutely fantastic conference. Thank you for all your immeasurable work, effort, and time. I feel like it was worth my time and my organization's money. I hope to use the ideas and resources I gained at the conference to better develop Ultimate in the Sacramento region."
Sacramento Ultimate Players Association


"I attended the Ultimate Organizers Conference in February and was in the audience for your Greening presentation.  Thank you for inspiring us.  We endeavored to go green at our hat draw tournament last week.  Next year, I think we can do even better."
Dana Gray
St. Louis Ultimate Association

"There is something very inspiring about having a weekend to talk and share ideas with so many people who have the same goals as I do, people who work hard to develop and grow Ultimate locally.  It's a rewarding experience that I won't miss ou on in the future."
