    Interesting topics covered, passionate and interesting speakers, and a really engaging and friendly environment! I was excited to hear about all the awesome stuff everyone is working on and, as someone who is not as tech-savvy as I would have liked, I am really being enlightened as to the ways technology can provide true access to justice.

    It was a great conversation. It was really cool to hear about the awesome stuff that's going on to improve legal access through technology. I wish there was more time for talking about stuff. It was really fascinating.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
