Happy Friday, Readers. I wanted to send another thank you to Carter Merkle, Berbon Hamilton, and all the other folks who made the ICBS Show 2022 such a great experience. There were some informative speakers and a great opportunity for networking. I was very pleased to be able to speak about local opportunities related to the infrastructure law. Hope you have a nice weekend and enjoy the Week In Review.
