Our keynote speaker, Valerie Horton, Minitex Executive Director, comes with rich interstate resource sharing experience.  Valerie was a co-founder of the COKAMO interstate delivery in Colorado, Kansas, and Missouri. Currently her organization provides and supports resource sharing in Minnesota and the Dakotas with a delivery connection to Wisconsin.
