Conference a great success!
I've been remiss in posting- Randall, Neela and I have been churning out documents left and right. Nametags, tent cards, reg forms, the devil is in the details... our final total was 177 registrations - a huge success for everyone involved!
Got up at 6am, to hit N. Campus 7am... we had some concern that we would run out of seats... Connie Majure-Rhett kept us on point as MC, Dr. Clay was a fantastic speaker, Dr. Rasheed did a great job with an outstanding and relevant panel and Jeff and Jeannette King of SpecialtySoft.Com finished us off with a technology discussion. Estimates are about 180 for breakfast and about 165 for lunch... great video coverage... everyone came together to pull off the most professional conference yet.
Most importantly, we had great community leader and black business participation... we increased awareness of the digital divide and through great insights and stories from the panel, stakeholders and speakers, we all experienced a great networking and learning opportunity.
