children getting hurt on escalators

Post: October 6th, 2010: ERS-2010-10-06 #222 Show Notes

Click Here to download ERS-2010-10-06 #222 Had a great time at the convention last week and have to hand it to the team at the NAEC for putting on another great convention. I loved Cincinnati and it had so much to share; old buildings, architecture, a rolling landscape, friendly residents and inexpensive parking. But what makes any conference a success are the people who attend it. I can’t tell you how great it was to see all of you who stopped by our booth and those who I ran into on the convention floor, in the hotel lobby and during meetings. For those of you who couldn’t make the event you missed a good one. On the show today I’ll recap last weeks show to the best of my ability and we’ll get caught up on the news from last week. Plus we’ll be giving away a $100 Gift Card from Visa and goodies from the companies listed below.

Special thanks to the companies who have donated goodies to the prize pack giveaway!
