I’ve been to D.C. few times and always stayed for few days, but this time I am going for full five days! I finally got around to finalize my agenda for the conference and I am sharing it here with you…in case you need to find meJ It includes not-to-miss programs and events. I wish I had a clon to attend more progams! For more, click on these REFORMA, IRRT, and IFRT. Of course, this agenda is still in construction and will be modified during the conference as meetings, dinners, drinks, etc., come up… Still, if you wonder where I am, feel free to email and for those of you with my phone number, text is the best!
Those with * are programs on my wish list…again, I need a clon!
