February 1 Update

Greetings RAWlings – countdown just ducked under 3 weeks to showtime!  We are pushing this beast to the finish line and need your help with a couple of pressing details.  First – I’d like to acknowledge the hard work of the Program Committee led by Julianne Steers in putting together a great slate of presentations.  The finishing touches have been put in place and the schedule should be live on this websiteSecond – we need to acknowledge the solid support we continue to see from our great vendor sponsors.  At this time we have just under 30 sponsors that are making this effort possible.  I will be personally emailing each of you to finalize your details in the next day or two, and working to get your logos up on the website to give you the recognition you deserve for pulling this off. 

We NEED 2 things from those of you that are still in this COVID limbo.  First – if you’re planning to come, please let us know.  We need you to register, or at least send me an email with your intentions so we can plan accordingly for room setup, breaks, lunches, etc.  Second, and maybe more pressing – make your room reservations at the Moody Gardens Hotel.  The guaranteed room block is set to expire at midnight on 1 February.  Please make those reservations to reserve your rooms.  If you have problems securing a reservation for Saturday 2/19, please send me an email.  We are working to gain rooms at an adjacent property for any overflow we see that first night.  We are unfortunately backed up on another group the week prior and that night was already quite full when we started this thing.

I’m excited to report that our registration topped 100 earlier today!  Those are late 1990s numbers.  Can we push this to an early 2000’s caliber?

Peace yall
