They were: Alan Krinsky of Alan Krinsky Associates; Jane Bedford of the Bedford Group; Dick Roth of Roth Associates; Ken Robinson of Ark Advisors, Joanne Davis of Joanne Davis Consulting; Lisa Colantuono of AAR Partners, Lorraine Stewart Lockhart of Rojek Consulting Group; and Brian Martin of SourceMartin in New York.
