See you in Atlanta at the 2011 ASET Annual Conference!

I am all packed and ready to go!  On Monday, July 25th, I have a 7:00 a.m. flight from Portland, Maine to Atlanta, where I will be managing our 2011 annual conference for the next week.  So, my office will be closed and I will have limited opportunities to check my e-mail!  I will be back in my office on August 3rd, and I know I will be tired but exhilarated and motivated by the experience of seeing all the wonderful people at the ASET meeting, and hearing all those inspirational talks!  I am particularly looking forward to hearing our Keynote speaker from DARPA and our Ellen Grass Lecturer, from the Center for Disease Control!  All fascinating stuff!

We begin the week with two and a half days of Board meetings, followed by four days of conference events.  We have two social events planned for evenings this year, so will have lots of opportunities to visit with folks that we only get to see once a year!  Our “E.T. Phone Home” Exhibit Hall reception promises to be lots of fun, with Sci Fi costumes!  I will add pictures to my next post.  I have my costume packed, but can’t release my “secret identity” yet!

I hope to see you all there!  Take care and safe travels to all, and MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!
