Jill Emery, NASIG President
It was hot in Phoenix in June and most of us liked it, thanks to an amazing venue, wonderful conference planners, and fantastic conference program planning. It’s currently hovering around 100 degrees Fahrenheit in Austin, and I can tell you it’s not nearly as much fun as Phoenix was. Each year, NASIG’s Program Planning and Conference Planning Committee members outdo themselves, and while I don’t expect the weather temperatures to be as high in Asheville, NC, next June, I’m already convinced that the conference and program planning will be equally impressive! The current conference theme for 2009 is “Riding the Rapids through Mountains of Change,” which is certainly how I feel on any given day at work. Keep your eyes out for the upcoming calls for presentation topics as the Program Planning Committee begins to set about putting together more great programming.
