A big thank you to Janette, Chuck and Phyllis for a great conference. Thanks to 
all committee chairs and volunteers and thanks to Harvey whose dedication kept 
him glued to the registration desk all conference long. He even apologized for 
the mistakes of the registerants! 
from a veteran conference goer.
