Good idea. Coming up.

Yep, that's what I'm trying to get happening. And while we can run a
conference without international speakers, I think they're one of the
cornerstones of a really good event, hence my solicitation.
If anyone has a burning desire to bring out someone in particular, I want
to know about it. I think it's important to give the members what they
want, rather than just what I think is good.
We have solidifying ideas about venue and date but nothing I'd want to put
on the web site right now. Many of these details are inter-related, but I
hope to have it sorted out this week.

No negativity taken. We have an opportunity to rectify that with a
seriously good conference and I'm seizing it.
