Many of the comments received on the evaluation forms were regarding the overcrowding of the rooms. There was good news and bad news. The good news was we had almost 700 attendees. The bad news was we had almost 700 attendees! When the conference site was chosen and the program set, we watched the registrations come in. As we evaluated each of the registrations as to session choice, we made preliminary plans for room assignments. We waited until the deadline to finalize the speaker and their room. As seen, we had an overwhelming number of attendees. So, changes have been made for the 2012 conference. There will be one session less per hour allowing the maximum use of the rooms and not dividing them to allow for more sessions.
