June 15, 2017Theresa Flaherty, Managing Editor

James Rogers is not just here for the party. Oh yeah, he likes the parties: the hog roast, Fiesta in the Heartland. “You've got to go, it's lots of fun,” he tried to convince me (I do not like parties. There, I said it). He's also here for the education and to meet with fellow providers—and not just during the traditional networking stuff. He followed one such fellow provider out of the Washington Legislative Update Tuesday afternoon. During the session, she had expressed frustration...
