I am in a support group of colleagues that formed at a professional conference about three years ago. The members of each support group were urged to "stay in touch with each other," but of course, most don't. Our support group has defied the odds and held a telephone conference call each month for three years!
Two of the four members are in NY/CT. One is in Ohio. She has a meeting in NYC this week, so we all agreed to meet there for a face-to-face and dinner. Except I couldn't swing the money.
The group surprised me with the gift of a trip to the City! They all pitched in saying it just wouldn't be a party without me! YEAH!
SO, if any NYC bloggers read this, I'll be arriving on Tuesday afternoon and leaving Thursday morning. At this point, only Wednesday night is scheduled. I'd love the chance to meet some folk face-to-face. Just send me an email and I'll get back with you ASAP.
