We're preparing to attend the annual NIADA Conference in Las Vegas July 24-28. It's seems like only yesterday we were in Detroit for the 2007 event. I'm looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones. I've never been to Las Vegas, but from what I've heard it should be quite an exciting time with sensory overload from all the lights and activities. The NIADA conference team has really put together a great schedule. Summer is in full swing here in Upstate NY. Hot, humid and filled with the sounds of cicadas and frogs. I have a new piece that I will share when I get back back from NIADA.
