Yes, that is my son -- pictured above -- speaking at his high school graduation and my daughter in the foreground signing for the deaf and hearing impaired.

Hi Tony,

I also want to let people know about the SNAP Annual Meeting. As you know SNAP is the Society of National Association Publications and has a lot to offer our community. The meeting is right around the corner. It is being held June 9-10 at the Capital Hilton in DC. They are covering a lot of great topics and are crazy enough to allow Fred Ullman of Association of Financial Professionals and I to talk about ad sales in an association environment.

Don't forget the AMMMC (Art Museum Membership Managers Conference) June 18-21 in Santa Fe.

This year AMMMC celebrates its 27th consecutive year. With 190 confirmed registrants, 50 engaging conference sessions by 50 of the best in the business, and set in Santa Fe -- one of the top three art markets in the country -- it promises to be the BEST yet.
