First-time conference attendee blogger: Call for Volunteer(s)

Dear all,

Bryan and I have been contacted by the organizers of this year’s upcoming annual conference about having a first-time attendee blog their experiences to the official conference blog. While there will be others blogging about their conference experiences, they would especially like to include the perspective of a first-timer or two who can document the experience of attending their first national conference.

You could make as much or as little as you like of this, by blogging daily during the conference or just occasional deep thoughts. That said, your posts will reach a wide audience so this would be an excellent opportunity for individuals who are striving to meet others and become involved in the organization.

If you are interested, please leave a response below. I don’t have too much more info than what appears above, but if there are questions I’m also glad to try to answer.



  1. Awesome. Thanks Sylvia & Alexandria!

    Thanks to all who signed up. The opportunity is now closed. Rachael Resnik will be adding you to the official conference blog within the next week.

    For other bloggers, tweeps, etc. (1st-timers or not) that will be covering the con, please add arlisna10 to your tags. I’ll be creating a widget that harvests those tags and rebroadcasts the content.

  2. What a great response! Thank you all so much. Patricia, Sylvia and Alexandria, I have just sent you invitations to be contributors to the blog. Let me know if you have any trouble posting. Rosemary, I don’t think I have your e-mail. Could you send an e-mail to rresnik at so I can add you?

    Looking forward to meeting all of you in April.
