So you know when we might be something out about this via e-mail?  I hate to be 
a pest, but I've got to decide on supplemental order for bags, notepads, and 
neck wallets.  We have 403 registrants currently.  I have 400 of each item....  
The thing is that the note pads have a minimum order of 50, but the tote bags 
and neck wallets have a minimum order of 100.  We need to make a decision by 
the end of the week if we're going to go ahead with a supplemental order of 100 
of each item??

The Common Core Sessions are not sessions you have to stay in the entire time.  
That is what I thought to begin with. I was talking to Ed before I left today 
and I think what we are going to do (Debra I am planning on calling you in the 
morning) is offer one session on Monday, 3 Tuesday Morning,  Dr. Burling's 
session right after lunch then present the 3 from that morning again Tuesday 
afternoon. Then maybe repeat the Monday session on Wednesday. We are thinking 
on doing  50 minute sessions instead of making them longer.   Dr. Burling will 
arrive Monday night and leaving Tuesday night. She is stopping by our 
conference on her way to London. Some of the other presenters can only be here 
Tuesday. They are all shuffling their schedules to attend the conference.   
People will then have an option if they want to attend other sessions.

The people attending the scheduling session will probably stay in that strand 
for all the sessions.  You do not necessarily have to attend Monday and Tuesday 
session for the Wednesday session.

I did ask, just to make sure, that she was not going to make any type of sales 
pitch.  Ed said no she doesn't know anything about the sales side.

We need to send and place on our website the session information ASAP. Also 
send out to any email groups we are a part of.  I hope this is going to 
encourage a lot more people to register next week.

Am I correct that Pearson is expecting anyone who attends any part of this 
strand, to be there for the duration?  I'm just thinking we need to be clear 
with folks that these are "all or nothing" strands.  Those that sign-up need to 
be committed to staying in that strand for the duration of the conference, 
right?  I can just see some of my people thinking "ooh, well, if I'm going to 
be there anyway, I may excuse myself long enough to go over and hear the GSFC 
presentation."  I think people may do that anyway, but our correspondence with 
our attendees needs to be clear.

I'm also kind of excited that some of our curriculum leaders might be forced to 
have breakfasts, lunch, and break times with our school level data folks.  
Might open some eyes to get those groups in the same conference together, and 
the luncheon speaker will help with bringing those worlds together.  Beginning 
to get excited about this idea :)
