It has been a very busy 2 months, and am glad that the holidays are
coming up for a break from the travel (and so I can get caught up on work).
Over the past few months I’ve been on the road 40 of the last 60 days, starting with a 10-day trip to Jordan for the ICMCI Annual Meeting, Hawaii for vacation (our first in 2 1/2 years), Confab, and a whirlwind trip of the East coast for IMC- and consulting industry-related meetings in NYC, and chapter meetings with the Carolinas and NE Chapters. It is amazing my wife still knows what I look like!
Confab. We had a great Confab this year. The program was superb, the food good, and the networking better than ever. Hat's off to the Confab Committee for a great conference.
Your Confab Committee this year was led by Michael Shays CMC FIMC, and the team made up of Joan Beavin CMC, Jennifer Beever CMC, Jane Black, Norm Eckstein CMC FIMC, Alice Heiman, John Newman, Dick Pinsker CMC FIMC, Don Scellato CMC, Cherryll Sevy CMC, and Doug Zogby. Thanks everyone, for a great conference!!!
