We have arrived! I took advantage of the morning sun and got a good swim in before it was time to prepare for tomorrow’s meetings. In Chicago, I’m lucky if I can swim outdoors during the month of August, so it’s kind of fun to swim in November!
At this point, many of us have wandered over to the Orange County Convention Center to check out the room ( Room W330E/F/G) where our ACCESS presentations will take place all day tomorrow (see ACCESS Program). When you are facing the main entrance, turn right and walk all the way down the hall (almost to the end of the building) and then go to the second floor. Be prepared to walk and be sure to wear comfortable shoes!
During tomorrow’s meeting, I am going to announce the launch of our newly revised website.
*Please note the change from .org to .com
This is where you will go to renew your membership for 2012. We are now doing electronic applications – no more paper! To join or renew, everyone must go to the website and fill out the online application. You will still have the choice of whether to pay online or send in a check. Either way you choose for payment, you still have to fill in the application online. This saves several steps on our end of things and we hope it will make the whole process more efficient. We will continue to add bells and whistles to the revised site so be sure to check on it from time to time. I hope you like the new look! A special thanks goes out to our VP of Communications, Crystal Swank who has been working hard on this project for a long time. Thank you Crystal!
I’ll have a few handouts at the front desk when you sign in for the day. I’m going to attach them here in case you would like to have an electronic copy and you can save the paper. I also think it would be nice to have the paper handouts for folks who are not ACCESS members and would like information about the organization.
This is a basic ACCESS information sheet
This doc is part of the new ACCESS Orientation packet we are creating and it is about the Blog
I look forward to seeing you tomorrow. And for those of you at home, I hope you are following the activities and that you feel free to make comments and participate too!
