Geneva Conference 2016

Conference Testimonials

As a Therap Certified Trainer, I have presented at several regional / state conferences. I found last year’s conference in Geneva, NY; to be one of the best organized I have attended. There was a wide variety of offerings and training tracks. The wireless network held. The rooms were clean and the conference was in a beautiful location. I am looking forward to seeing what the NY team comes up with next year!

Regional Conference- Geneva NY

The Geneva conference was a great venue for the regional Therap conference. I enjoyed presenting as part of the Provider Administrator User Panel. This proved to be very beneficial for agencies who are just signing on with Therap or those who have been using Therap for years. It was also beneficial for me as an administrator to hear other processes.

Liz Stanton, Electronic Documentation Coordinator, QIDP, Heritage Christian Services
My colleagues and I attended the Regional Conference in Geneva, NY this year. Aside from the gorgeous view of the lake and the wonderful food, we thoroughly enjoyed the wide assortment of presentations. I was especially pleased with the number user presentations; I always find it most interesting to attend the “real life” demonstrations. Many of our first time users attended this year and I was pleased with their positive feedback. Kudos to the NY team. Keep up the great work.
