December 2009 — I recently chaired the AHRA Board of Directors fall meeting in Boston, MA.

October 2009 — How can it be fall already? For some reason, the summer months always seem to fly by. Fortunately, in California, we typically have warm weather in September and into October, so I can still do some of the warm weather projects I didn’t get around to doing earlier.

Leaving Las Vegas

September 2009 — Another outstanding annual meeting! I hope those in attendance enjoyed this year’s meeting as much as I did. The educational sessions were as great as ever, the Mandalay Bay venue was fabulous, our vendor partners were there educating us in the exhibit area, supporting our meeting and some of our social functions. We had many great opportunities to network with our friends and colleagues.
