I'm fine with an arrival on Thursday giving us a full day on Friday.   We 
can also add some time by going longer on Sunday - though that can run  into 
issues with checkouts and whether or not the hotel will let us keep our  
meeting room.
I'm open to whatever the committee chooses.

For quite  some time now we have been wrestling with how to incorporate more
events  into our convention. We simply cannot do more than we are doing if 
limit  ourselves to Friday evening, Saturday, and Sunday until noon. We 
talk  about Friday as an opportunity for expansion, and some divisions  and
committees have taken advantage of this day to hold  seminars.

A committee of Gene Coulter, Julie McGinnity, Bethany  Bennington, and 
Wright would like your input as we figure out how to  expand the convention.
There are certain meetings which are so important  that they need to be
placed at times that don't put them in conflict with  other important
meetings. They can't be placed so early that people don't  come or so late
that people can't stay up. The real question this committee  must address is
whether people are willing to add an extra day to their  convention
experience, and they will need your help in figuring this  out.

I believe that from this email you will be able to see the  contact
information for each committee member. Give them your thoughts, and  when
they post requests on the list for input, please give them the  benefits of
your wishes, thoughts, and your wisdom as  members.
