The IBS Scholarship Program provided a truly VIP experience that helped me to participate in more aspects of the Builders’ Show than I ever would have on my own. It turned what could have been an overwhelming experience into a manageable and enjoyable one, and the knowledge I gained will help me to have a much more fulfilling IBS experience when I attend again in years to come.”
