Attending the APG Virtual PMC, are you?

Today and tomorrow I am sitting in frigid Virginia (it is below zero here with wind chill!) watching the APG Virtual Professional ManagementConference (VPMC).  I am convinced I would be warmer if I was attending in person at Salt Lake City!  However, since I am currently battling being sick (sitting on couch, under the covers with my lap top) the attendees should be thankful that I am not there in person.

This is the first one I have attended and I am looking forward to it greatly.  No, I won’t get to see or participate in everything like I was there in "real life", but for what I can do it’s great.  I am going to learn a lot and I hope that many of you will chat with me about it if you are attending virtually too.  To see my thoughts, go watch mytwitter feed during the live streaming. I am going to do my best to tweet between coughs and such.  We will see how well that goes.

The schedule for the VPMC is as follows:

Like I said, it is a great line-up.  I wonder how well I am going to keep up with notes today.  Someone bring me chicken soup!  Luckily the recordings will be available later so I can review them again if I need to sleep.

On that note, send me healing vibes, let me know your thoughts, and give me a shout out if you are watching from home too.
