I'm going to the convention, and I live near Pasadena. But my boyfriend and I are driving up Friday and making it a Valentine's Day weekend, driving back Monday probably. So anyone is welcome to drive up with us, but they'd probably have to find an alternative way home.
Hey, Lauri. Glad to see your face online. I dropped the ball. My apologies. I know you emailed me through DRA and didn't get back to you. It's been hectic, trying to prepare for the next DRA board meeting, convention, etc.
I am sooooo glad to see you're going. I'm going on Wednesday. Doing some wine tasting on Thursday, and visiting the Luther Burbank Gardens. I hope to see you on Friday!! Nice to see you.
I will be at the convention, definitely. I will be arriving mid-afternoon on Friday. If you let me know you're here, I can introduce you around. It really looks like a great program. I have been lobbying for years for more Depo Dilemma type programs -- I would be perfectly satisfied with an entire weekend in which the founders of DRA just talked about reporting! -- and that is happening. Definitely go. Rohnert Park is not my idea of a dream destination, but you're not too far from some great Sonoma County beaches, not to mention redwoods.
I am not planning to attend this particular DRA seminar, though I've served on the board a couple of years and their seminars are always worth the money, well attended, and well thought out. I don't think you will be disappointed. Many, many great people on the board and helping with every aspect of the seminar.
I live in Ontario, California, and work pretty much all over So. Cal. strictly as a freelance LiveNote reporter.
You should definitely meet Marla, she will keep you informed locally as well :)
Can't get motivated to travel at the moment, just drove over 3,000 miles at Christmas, and had a couple of trips prior to that. Went to Santa Barbara yesterday for work, so just tired of living out of my suitcase at the moment :)
Definitely planning to spend the four days at National in Anaheim though in July and get ALL my points at once :)
Got your invite for the 27th. I'm hoping I can make that work :)
Thank you for all your work for all of us!
