Gothard Admits that ATI Conference "wasn't so hot"
OAK BROOK, IL - Bill Gothard today admitted that the annual ATI conference "wasn't so hot, in my opinion."
"I don't think we gave the world a new approach to life this year," he said in a moment of candor. Gothard cited low attendance, poor speakers, and the lack of interesting sessions for the disappointing results. "Enthusiasm was at an all time low," he observed. "I actually saw people fall asleep during sessions."
An overwhelming number of attendees indicated disappointment. "We just won't be coming backing, if this is what we can expect," said one parent.
"Frankly, I'm grieved," said Gothard.
