  1. I just wanted to say “thank you”, Kathy. You are amazing at what you do. I can’t say it enough 🙂 Can’t wait to register!


    • Donna,

      I am hoping to get the registration up by next weekend, but everytime I think I am close, someone changes something and then I have to start juggling things around.



      • Kathy, I sincerely feel for you and still can’t comprehend how you ultimately handle things so well, especially with the conference each year; it’s such an undertaking. Whenever it is you’re able to get it finalized, I know I’ll have an ear-to-ear grin when the email comes through 😀


  2. OOOOOOOooooooook…I got a little notice that there was a “duplicate comment” detected. First time I’ve seen that, but I’ll retype to be sure it goes through. It’s not that I had anything earth-shattering to say, but felt the need to, once again, thank you, Kathy, for all the work you do for the conference. You truly are amazing, and I’m not just saying that. I can’t wait to register!
