    Nah, it's actually fairly late in the game.

    "Official" events take 18 months because you've got to RFP, fund the account and start the whole "money dance".

    "Unofficial events" take about 12 months to plan the who, what, where and publicize it.

    Soon though, I promise.

    You'd think bringing in a large group of young professionals, many in the six figure range into a Las Vegas hotel would get you some bargaining power. But then you tell them "Airline Pilots" and the data shows that it's not necessarily a valuable demographic. Plumbers and accounts, they will bend over backwards for, but us, man, we don't drop the loot.

    I always say I'm a hydraulic and electric systems manager or a aluminum tube delivery specialist. We could try that!

    PS, I'm totally going to make it this year!

    As long as it happens I'll try to be there. After all these meet ups tend to make me hustle a bit more.

    Yeah yeah yeah I've said it every year... Life has gotten in the way (work schedule). This year though... This year, I'm hoping to make it. I'll have the funds and I have some perceived "seniority" that should help me get the days off. Going for me is long over due.
