The week before the NAEC convention each year is always exciting! This year I’m actually surprised at how organized I am. On today’s show I’m going to talk about the convention and the agenda items for next week and also cover the articles that I’ve found online. I’m looking forward to seeing many of you next week. Please stop by booth 1004 and say hi! It amazes me each year how many people stop by and tell me that they listen to the show and I’m always humbled by it. I’m not sure if there will be a show next week as I’ve found it extremely difficult to find the time to put one together but instead might do something a little different. I’ll see how the week plays out.
