“Silverchair does a phenomenal job of uniting the scholarly publishing community to learn from a diverse group of experts on the topics and trends that mean the most to the industry today. I count on attending every year so that I can stay relevant and informed as an individual and use what I learn to ensure my organization is best-in-class in an increasingly competitive world. I have notes from presentations and conversations from years past that I still refer to consistently today.”—Jennifer Regala, American Urological Association
