Conferences

There are two types of conferences that I have observed in my professional career.  Conference type 1 is comprised of good stuff and good people, usually in good places.  Or at least warm places.  Conference type 2 is interesting content.   That's about it. 

I am attending conference type 2.  For the next several days, I will be sitting in a classroom in, wait for this, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where I will be filling my brain with all kinds of details on investigations. 

Let's review.  My benefit colleagues travel to warm places in the dead of winter to learn about benefits stuff.  Florida. Texas.  Arizona.  California. 

I am heading to Milwaukee, Wisconsin in the dead of winter.  I have nothing against Milwaukee.  In fact, it's a great city.  I just don't want to visit in January. 

Sigh.  I expect my brain will be profoundly fried during my adventure so I will be back at it the end of week.  Here's to good learning.

Deirdre,

What exactly is the difference between "good stuff" and "interesting content"? At first blush they would appear to be somewhat the same, aren't they?

Investigations is a great topic and will take your mind off the weather!

David, good stuff for me involves technology. This training involves harassment and reporting requirements. Interesting but not necessarily good. At least to me.

Marcia, thanks for stopping by! I look forward to checking out your blog!

Hi Deidre.
Thank you. I look forward to your comments! I really like your blog-your topics are interesting and your posts are succinct and fun! Mine are too lengthy and the topics, although relevant, are dry.
Have a great conference.
And thanks again.
