I know I’m supposed to say this, but what a great conference! Packed plenary sessions for John Berry, Paul Volcker, and Richard Stillman. Inspiring guest speakers and awardees. Last night at the receptions, I asked a few first-time attendees why they came this year. More often than not, they said that they heard about how good last year’s conference was in Miami. I think that bodes well for 2011 in Baltimore. That, and the fact that we had 1,000 attendees in San Jose – a 10% increase from last year. I can’t wait to see what the 2011 conference chairs and committee will cook-up for Baltimore. I’m getting ahead of myself…we still have a closing plenary to look forward to this morning.
Personal highlights for this year’s conference include the welcome reception at the Tech Center, the IOUSA Solutions documentary (recommended), and our staff who rose to the challenge before and during the event.
