I’m surprised I’ve seen nothing recently reminding people of the FGS event in Knoxville next week.

Anastasia – I went to this same event in Boston when it was held this past February. It was good, and the scanning service was helpful (although registering for scanning sessions was a madhouse). However, I notice that the seminar topics this time are nearly exactly the same (with the exception of the one on immigration). I checked my syllabus from February to make sure. Will there be anything different at this conference that will make it worth my while to go again?

Deb — A great question about the classes. The day will consist of 4 class sessions — with 4 concurrent classes per session. We are still determining the exact class offerings. In general, many classes and topics will be new and some will be the same as last February. The final class offerings will be based 100% on classes and topics attendees tell us they are most interested in attending. The final class schedule will include more than a dozen class offerings. We hope you’ll be able to join us!

Thanks for the reply, Anastasia…but I’m hesitant to register for a conference when the classes haven’t been defined. I guess I’ll take my chances and hope that it won’t be sold out if I decide to come later.
