Missing IABCWC13

IABC badgeThe flurry of #IABCWC13 tweets and jolly Facebook posts about exciting adventures in New York has bombarded me for days, each one a sharp reminder that I did not attend this year’s IABC World Conference.

I’m feeling a little sad about that, although it turned out to be beyond my budget this year. I missed the earlybird deadline, and it wasn’t extended as long as usual (of all years, with all the turmoil going on!). Add in a few unexpected expenses, and here I am in Canada.

So instead of attending sessions and taking notes, I am avidly reading posts by others and following the collection my usual and much-loved roomie, Donna Papacosta, has pulled together.

I also went back to relive earlier conferences in my previous posts:

I’m already planning ahead for IABCWC14 in Toronto! Anyone with me?

    I too am missing the conference this year, and my roomie (although your delivery of a Starbucks latte and snack to my office yesterday morning somewhat eased the pain).

    Thanks for reminding us of those posts. I remember them the first time around — you had some gems there. Next year in Toronto!

    Thanks, Donna — and thanks for YOUR delivery of a chai latte and muffin this morning. That helped!
