By Sandy . . . As I write this, I have been home less than ten minutes after the conclusion of our Houston conference, our eleventh.
Our overall attendance broke all previous conference records at just over 200, making Houston our largest conference to date.
Also making this conference special was the honor that the office of the mayor of the city, Sylvester Turner, extended to NARSOL in the way of an official letter welcoming us to Houston.
There were so many highlights worth noting that I’m almost reluctant to mention any, knowing that I will omit someone or something I should not have.
Certainly the bright starts were attorney Paul Dubbeling with his message of effective legal and advocacy strategy that emphasizes facts, truth, and persistence; Guy-Hamilton Smith and David Mensah with their messages of effective personal story-telling – without which the facts may never have an impact; and Lenore Skenazy with her absolute, unquenchable enthusiasm and ebullience and her message of living our lives based on the rational rather than the irrational.
