At NAPABA National Convention in Atlanta

Got into Atlanta last night, arrived at the Westin Peachtree near midnight.  The flight from LaGuardia left the gate on time but because of the rainy weather there were 19 planes ahead of us on the runaway, which meant that we didn’t take off until about 9 pm.

IP Committee Co-Chair Karen Lim was on the same flight.  She wasn’t able to get a cab from Manhattan until about 6:20 pm and thought that she wouldn’t make the flight.  But she did.  In Atlanta, we shared a cab to our hotels.  She must have booked early because she got a room at the Omni.  I booked at the Westin because I always seem to forget about booking a room until late in the game.

I’ll be heading to International Ballroom D shortly.  I’m the luncheon speaker at the BLI (Bar Leadership Institute).  I’ll be talking about AABANY’s experience as the first affiliate with an ED.

Already seeing a lot of Asian faces here, most of them unfamiliar to me.  I expect more New York people will be arriving in the course of the next couple of days.
