Kate -

Let me be the first to congratulate you on your appointment  ;D

I would absolutely love to be co-social director and look forward to working with you.  Thanks for the nomination! 

In addition to this great honor, I am on the volunteer list as well as the sponsor list and I am very anxious to meet lots and lots of my fellow forumites!  So when the time comes, I'd like to urge everyone to sign up.  Chicago IS a great city to visit and I'm confident we'll all have a wonderful time.

Besides, let's not forget, Steve is buying the drinks - and I'm sure he'll be bringing all those custom-knitted hats he's promised us this past year  ;)  I hear mine's green.  Can't wait!!!

I don't actually "make" trouble..just kind of attract it, fine tune it, and apply it in new and exciting ways

Oh Boy! A social director! I was last symposium's fashion accessory co-ordinator. I passed out about 50 pirate scarves, necklaces, earrings, pens, pencils, etc. It was a blast. I'm starting my new collection soon! See you in Chicago.

Jan, if you're busy volunteering, how are you going to have time to enjoy the drinks Steve is buying?  Well, I'll just have yours, I guess.

Nice try, Lori  :D

I'm not sure what my volunteering "gig" involves since this will be my first (of hopefully many) ANA Symposiums, but I think it's probably something like registration - you know handing attendees their registration packets.

If that is my assignment, I'll make sure I slip everyone those free drink tokens that Steve has so graciously asked the powers that be at the ANA to give us all - compliments of him, of course  ;)  Those that I like just may get extra tokens - so you'd better start being nice to me  ;D

Personally I can't wait to see the loot Captain Deb brings this year.  Dibs on a necklace and some earrings!

Well, just think how little I'll have to pack - Cap'n Deb will be the official outfitter of the symposium!  Can't wait to see what she picks out!   :o

Gee, if Cap'n Deb is handing out scarves and stuff at this convention, maybe I should save the knitted hats for another time?  ???

Who says you can't wear a knit hat with a pirate patch?

Besides, if it truly is The Windy City, we'll need something to keep our newly colored hair from blowing around!

Nice try, Steve  :D

You are not getting out of the hat deal that easily!  Make mine green - light green, dark green, doesn't really matter.  I am SO looking forward to my hat.

Lacey -

glad to hear you're planning on attending.  I'm going to be in San Diego prior to the meeting.
