CSM 2013: A ‘Fine’ Time for Networking, Fun
King of Prussia---I'm looking forward to attending this year's Combined Sections Meeting nexk week in (what we hope is) sunny San Diego! It will be a nice change of pace from last year's meeting, which was a lot of fun, but also quite chilly in the Windy City. We here at ADVANCE's offices in the Philly suburbs need warmth--and fast!
While members of the ADVANCE team were in San Diego in 2010 for that winter meeting, the last time I was there was in 2006 for CSM--and it was memorable for many reasons. The night before my flight out, my twin sister Angela gave birth to her triples, my two nieces and nephew. It was a crazy day, leaving work, driving with my family to the hospital and waiting to see that the babies were OK and that my sister was doing well. It made for a long night, then a long flight. The conference was a lot of fun and interesting as it always is, but to say I went through the week a bit distracted was an understatement.
This year promises a lot of great information and a lot less drama! I am especially looking forward to networking with people I've come to feel are my "colleagues," who contribute to ADVANCE in many ways and who help keep our magazine by PTs, for PTs. And from what I hear there is a lot to do in San Diego; in 2006 I was fortunate enough to get to see the famed San Diego Zoo (and the adorable baby pandas!!) Perhaps a visit back? Or something new...
Please stop by ADVANCE's booth #717 if you can to chat, and bring us any questions you have. Hope to see you there!
