    TxAPA/APATX fall conference

    I've decided I'm going this year. I haven't been since it was in Dallas. I'll register sometime this week, to be sure I get in the workshops I want. Is anyone else going? If you are going, will you stay at the conference hotel, or somewhere else?

    How about a Laefest???

    bobcatplanner, my coworker, will be attending. I was slated to attend, but the dates conflicted with the date I'm scheduled to take the LSAT, so I offered to be the guy who stayed home to "hold down the fort", etc.

    I am registered!

    I passed on the workshops. Since I'm paying for this myself, I'll make do with a session or two in those time slots.

    I plan on driving down Weds. and returning Sat. morning. I'm willing to carpool for gas money - or a beer or two.

    I am registered and also have my room reservation. I had a choice of poolside, Riverwalk view, or the King Suite.

    Can you guess which one I chose?

    No dice for me, which is disappointing. The conference is going on right at the height of our grant application and Action Plan cycle. A shame because a couple of my friends will be getting awards and I expect there will be some kind of celebration of Gene Lewis, probably the single most active person in TxAPA, finally retiring after more than 35 years with the City of Lewisville.

    I'll be heading up the local host committee for next year's TxAPA conference in Austin though.

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    I'll be going to the SA conference this year. Are we having a meetup sometime?
