I write to you from San Antonio following our national conference and Board meeting. The hotel felt different this morning: no conference registration desk, no exhibits, and a different group of conferees unknown to me. I missed familiar faces, the focus of presenters on the way to their sessions, the infectious bursts of laughter from colleagues gathering once again, and the curious, sometimes anxious looks of first-time attendees taking everything in, navigating their way into the fold, experiencing something new.
