    Richard:
        Love your ideas.  I would attend nearly all of those proposed programs.  I am supportive - great ideas.  Looking forward to everyone's suggestions about what they would like to see being presented at the conference. We want the conference to be a real enlightening event that assists everyone in both their professional and personal life.  This is everyone's chance to contribute their special knowledge and experience to the betterment of the profession and gain some visibility within the community.
        Happy New Years.
