Since it was my first national conference, I really can't compare it to
anything other than the Texas conference in November. They seemed better
prepared for the large numbers of people. People were not standing out in
the hall because the room was so packed. I went to both museum and
elementary meetings, and was please with the information. I've already taken
ideas from the workshops and applied it to our education program planning
I was shocked at the closed-minded attitudes and rudeness of a few people.
If you don't like the presentation, it doesn't meet your expectations leave
especially if it is one of the free meetings. Don't sit and complain to your
friend, so no-one else can hear. Our educator recommended a small place
across the streets to someone complaining about the price of food. The woman
actually said - I won't leave the hotel it is in a bad neighborhood. Sunday
we left for a while (both feeing claustrophobic) went to the MOCA and
Chinatown. We found some great inexpensive items to add to still-life and
some great paper for collage.
