Happy fall, everyone! Mother Nature has cooperated by providing a very West Coast fall day to kick things off. Nothing like a few gray skies to make the possibility of a prize seem even better...


Thanks to everyone who got their registrations in during the summer. We appreciate it!

Just remember that if you haven't had a chance to register yet, early bird prices are still in effect for another week, until the end of the month. Sign up soon!

If you were organized to register in the spring (gasp! - you people are amazing) or in the summer (hey, not too shabby either. It's hard to be productive in the summer!), you were automatically entered in our end-of-summer book draw.

The winner was decided by a random number generator, so blame it, not me, if you didn't win. (I'm talking to you especially, BJ Muntain! :-) )

And the winner is.... *drum roll*.... Kate Rose of Oregon! Congrats, Kate! We'll have a book prize waiting for you at the registration desk at the conference.

If it wasn't you this time, don't despair. I think maybe, just maybe there's one more of these contests up my sleeve between now and the conference. Keep an eye on the blog for details.
