Wow, all these years I thought that conferences were attended to
gain a lot of knowledge in a short amount of time. During the three
STC conferences I've attended I was concerned with sprinting from
meeting to meeting so I could have a seat. By nightfall I was much
too exhausted to have sex and drink like many of the writers replying
to this thread. I agree that conferences are a perk among other things,
but I alway got a lot out of the STC conferences I attended.
If you don't like the subject matter, bitch and moan or work from within
to improve the agenda.
