What a great and productive time.  Anyone missing this meeting, missed a lot.

Over the next few days, I will be sending out special announcements as to a number of items that came up during the meeting.

Stephy has sorted out the meeting photos and they are now available on the website under the Annual Meetings tab or here.


If you have pictures from the meeting, please send them to us, or send us a link to where they are, and we’ll try to incorporate them all.

We haven’t decided on a place or a date for our 2016 MEETING yet, but I will be getting something out to all of you shortly on this.

Once again, and I know this embarrasses Annis, but I shared with Aniss Juma of All Ways Cargo, how absolutely amazing their company was in investing in the meeting with their money and their warmth.  And, why not?  As we bring our meeting to countries around the world, why not welcome it in the same spirit of hospitality.


We are headed back to Asia next year, and if you would like to be considered as a Gold Sponsor, please let me know.   We will be having our meeting in the March/April time frame, so its important to keep in mind both weather and visa limitations.

Great seeing everyone in Portugal, what a great family reunion….
