See you in Kansas City, Provo, and Oregon!


Kansas City, Missouri; Provo, Utah; Eugene, Oregon

The Summer season of conferences continues and we’ve had a great time meeting many of our users face-to-face.  While we’ve been able to meet with many of you, we know that there are many more that we haven’t yet passed through your neck of the woods.  This week will hopefully rectify that for some of you.  Through the miracle of human cloning, we will be attending three separate conferences in three separate states this coming week!  (Well, not exactly cloning- just a lot of creative scheduling and travel.)  So if you live near Utah, Missouri, or Oregon, we’d love to meet you, answer your questions, and hear your suggestions.
