A Message from the COO,

Congratulations to everyone involved with the Miami Conference. It really was a tremendous success both for those who attended in person and those of us who were virtual attendees. A huge vote of thanks goes to Jeff Taraboulas and his team at KSDT and of course to Kathy Rose.

Congratulations also go to KSDT for receiving the Integra Firm of the Year award, they must be congratulated if only for the sheer determination and perseverance to host our conference despite all that the Pandemic has thrown at us, and of course to our Global Chairman Brain Hunter who was presented with the Glickman Award. Brian, you have done an excellent job during the most difficult of times and Integra is very grateful!
