We stopped Joy in the hall to ask for her assessment of the conference on the last day of sessions.

Tim Sanders got rave reviews from attendees yesterday, with folks saying they left with lots of useful information and ideas. We hope you left with a little inspiration, too.

Despite the fact that we were in one of the largest rooms in the hotel,  it was standing room only for this morning event. In fact, quite a few of the session rooms were standing room only. We’re always happy to squeeze in more session participants! Please make sure to be courteous and discrete when entering and leaving the room.

Hello Mid-America Region Members!

Your Volunteer City Representatives (VCRs) and I are looking forward to seeing you at the Regional meeting on Monday afternoon at conference.  It is important that you attend not only so we win with the most number of attendees and for the great door prize drawing, but also to help us with decorating our Regional Flag that will be displayed throughout the week as well.  It is Top Secret but just between us, OUR FLAG WILL ROCK!!!

There will be beverages and time to visit with members from cities across our region and of course you need to pick up our region buttons to proudly wear on your conference badge all week.

See you in Dallas!

Welcome to the ILTA Conference Blog!

The purpose of this conference blog is to help attendees connect with other attendees on site, and to help non-attendees make those connections virtually. Here are some of the ways we’re going to do that:

Before the conference:
1. You’ll see posts from speakers and attendees before the event where they’ll discuss what they’ll be talking about, what sessions they will attend and whom they hope to see.

2. We’ll link to the main conference site for reminders about the program.

3. We’ll post some helpful articles with advice on how to make the most of your conference attendance.

4. We’ll offer a place for attendees to share their plans and possible pre-meet other attendees so you’ll know a colleague or two when you get there.

During the conference:
1. We’ll post highlights from the day’s sessions and events and invite attendees to share their highlights through post comments.

2. We’ll post photos and video interviews to the blog, and take your comments and suggestions for more.

3. We’ll keep you updated on changes and can’t-miss events.

Most importantly, we invite you to use this space to comment, share, give advice and hook-up with your fellow ILTAns.
