I am hopeful that I will in fact get to go to the annual Blackboard World conference this year. I asked my boss today, "Hey Mike, any update on Bb World?" "Your going..."
Until I get the green light to book the travel, I will remain cautiously optimistic.
I love going to this conference because I learn so much and make a lot of cool professional contacts. This year it is in Washington D.C. Trivia, I've never been to D.C. and the only Bb World I've missed since 2006 is the one they had in D.C. (been to ones in San Diego, Vegas, Boston, New Orleans, Orlando).
Turning out to be a very packed summer with all of the concerts and stuff!
