Yay! I'm going! First time! Newbe consultant. Got the days off work and just confirmed travel arrangements. I can't wait! I'm excited just by everyone else talking about it!!
Also, first post! Just signed up on here as well.
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.
