Track B for me, with the late lunch time on Fri. Yes, I'm already planning my meals. Time for everyone to add their Track to their signatures.

For those wanting a roommate, someone should start a "roommate wanted" thread. For those who just want to break out of their cluster with a new buddy or two, why don't you start a "conference buddy wanted" thread?

Started the thread. http://www.chefsuccess.com/f107/conference-buddy-roommate-wanted-68289/

Oh, and Track A for me. (found out my NED is now back down to an SED....hmmm..didn't know that.) I was surprised- only 2 workshops! Seems a lot less than the last two years. I'm assuming that at least one of the general sessions is like last year with the keynote speaker.

What I noticed though was that on the first day, there is a special training for Cons. - TL, while the Director Training is going on. That's something they've never done before. So that may be taking the place of one of the workshops.

Last year they claimed the general session speakers (that husband and wife team) were the same as a workshop session, like in previous years when they had Tammy Stanley or Belinda Ellsworth in to do a workshop which was offered several times throughout conference. It's certainly a cost savings to pay those speakers for just one presentation.

And did you notice that while the Cons-TL training is going on (great idea!) that Director training part 2 will be going on, divided by level. This may go along with the upper level academy that they're offering later in the year, paying attention to those who have been in the biz a long time or stuck at a level.

No publicity from HO yet on who the outside speakers will be, if any. As Rae said in the countdown thread, they'll keep releasing nuggets of info to keep us interested.

I did figure the keynote speakers in one general session would count...and I liked that a lot! More info than just from a 45-50 minute workshop.

I missed the Consultant-TL Training though. Wonder what that might be like? Maybe a mini-version of DE??? Inspiration to move up the ranks, etc.

I didn't think I would go again this year since my brother is getting married in June, but I earned my first excellence award for sales and I am going to get my ring!!! So I will be there. I booked my flight too early though and didn't realize we would be done so early Saturday, so I don't fly out until Sunday at noon. Some of my team is going but I hope someone is staying until Sunday so I don't have to pay for a room and be by myself the last night, I'll be bummed if that happens!!

In August, I will celebrate 3 years with PC, this will be my first conference. My director is so good to me. She reserved a block of rooms and has assigned those of us she knew were going to those rooms. I no longer need to stress about having a room, I will be riding with a couple other consultants who will be traveling on Thursday (we're all consultants and don't see a need to go on Weds) to Milwaukee and taking the train to Chicago. I am so excited to finally go to conference!!

Conference Club is the way to go!! That's how I can finally afford it.
