Lynne was extremely helpful to the Conference Committee for the 2005 Yosemite CCAPA Conference. Quite frankly, and without dramatizing, Central Section could not have pulled together the conference without her.

Consider the following, and keep in mind that the Conference was held in October, 2005:

1. All sponsors were locked in by January, 2005. Lynne pulled this together almost singlehandedly.

2. All panels and keynote speakers were locked in by April 2005. This task was achieved by the Committee who had been freed up from administrative details, to concentrate on the program content. This gave us 6 months to "sell" a fully developed conference.

3. If you really think about it, Yosemite is not an effective Conference facility; it's a national park, with breakout sessions scattered throughout the Valley. Only one session was overbooked. Through Lynne's extensive advance planning and on-site coordination ( rockslide wiped out 10 of our rooms two days before the Conference) , not to mention shrewd negotiation skills for meals and room rates, the "customer experience" of attendees came off without a hitch.

How else can you measure success?
