Just went to the conference registration desk to sign in and
saw that the place was alive with activity. The staff told me it’s been
non-stop action since they opened at 8:30 this morning. And everywhere I’ve
gone in the hotel (which is quite nice, by the way) I’ve bumped into NACCE
Had breakfast beside folks from Eastern West Virginia
Community & Technical College, in Moorefield, WV. They’re a finalist in the NACCE
Entrepreneurial College in Action Grant competition, funded by the
Coleman Foundation. They apparently are first up among the presenters this
afternoon and were doing some fine-tuning of their presentation. They seemed
pretty cool about it, but the opportunity to win up to $15,000 for your
entrepreneurial program would give anyone sweaty palms, I’d think.
It’s great to start running into people I’ve met at past
NACCE Conferences, like Jackie Peterson from Portland Community College in
Portland, OR, and Ed Massey from Indian River State College in FL. Makes the
place feel like home!
