The last time I looked, the session grids and session descriptions were not posted yet. They probably won't be for another month or more. This is what you need to go to your boss with, and point out all the different opportunities for learning that COMMON offers. If you know someone that has attended in the past, perhaps you could borrow their conference agenda to show your company. I have been to 3 conferences, and am always regretful that there are some sessions that I just can't get to. There's just not enough time to get to every session that you want to. Regretfully, because of the number of people we have, I don't get to go but every 2 or 3 years. You can't get that kind of exposure at any other class or conference I have ever been to. Then there's the joy of discovering some fascinating session that you go to, because there's not anything else scheduled at that time. Or going to a session on a subject that you've always wanted to learn about 'someday', but never have the time. Even if you attend a subject you think you'll never use, at least you've had the exposure, so that if it ever comes up in your company's future, at least you won't be going in totally uninformed. I am one of those people who do better in a class type situation. Reading a book or the internet is okay for research, but to really learn something, especially something new, I think a classroom setting is better. Another great value is the networking and just being in the atmosphere with people who are there to learn just like you. Not to mention putting a face to some of the people on this list, and all the great speakers. COMMON is where I heard about this list. Now I can't do without it. Valene M.
