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 :)
