next years conference

Posted by Billie Lowe , Sep 26,2001,12:53   Archive
I was wondering if anyone can tell me the exact dates of next year's conference? We want to attend & my husband needs to set his vacation accordingly. He has to put the dates for next years vacation in very soon.

Billie, in the 20th Anniversary Blue Book on the back page, it says that next year's conference will be in Houston, Texas, on August 23-25, 2002.

The year 2003 conference will be in Philadelphia, PA. No date is listed for this conference, yet.

My sister e-mailed me from work today to tell me she got the tapes I ordered from the recent blepharo conference. (in Arizona?) She was so happy to receive them.

Thanks for making the information available to everyone.

This is why I love this site so much. I send tons of information to my sister who doesn't have time at work to plug in to the site. Also, she does not have a PC at home.

I still say "you're the guardian angel of this web-site." Please don't chide me for "putting you on a pedestal. And there are others like you and Nilda Rendino, VA state coordinator of BEBRF who have helped so much.

God bless you all!

Hi Geri, I want to apologize for not being very tactful about that before. I have thought about it many times since then and have worried about it. I am sorry for being so blunt. I just don't consider myself an angel. I'm just a person who has BEB and a strong desire to make things easier for others. I guess that it is the nurse in me. More of a mother hen type thing. I do appreciate the compliment and if you find comfort in thanking me or us in this way then it is ok with me. It made me a little uncomfortable and that is why I told you to get me off the pedestal. It wasn't very nice of me.
I hope that you will forgive me for being rather rude to you. I hope that you continue to gather information for your sister. She's got a real friend (besides being a sister) in you.

I hope that your sister enjoys the tapes. Humor and all. I know that she will get a lot out of them. I'm glad that she is still able to work. It must be stressful for her.
