Hello.  Some good person (I remember a female voice) talked to me about the 
2011 National Conference.  I knew I had a conflict and could not attend.  
HOWEVER, my conflict has disappeared and now I am embarrassed not to be able to 
remember who called me.  So I am throwing caution to the winds and saying...if 
you contacted me please be so kind as to get in touch again.  thanks.  :)
