Congratulatons, Paul, highest score!

Hurrah to John for the first strike.

I think Helen's award was for extreme bowling.

Rob, aka Bobbie, attempted to bowl incognito.

Now what was that award for, Mary Lynn?

The conference host is still smiling!

David knows more than one thing about fundraising!

He even knows more than 5 things about fundraising.

Denise makes outcomes measurement interesting and challenging!

And we try our hand at it, too.

The Federal Reserve Bank hosted a very nice buffet!

Day 2

Mary Lynn and Maryann have us thinking about career paths and succession.

We worked in groups to think about what the leaders should be doing (1) during their first two years, (2) from years 3 to 5, (3) mid-career, and (4) in the last five years of their career.

During the first two years of an economic education professional:

From 3-5 years into your career

3-5 years continued

Mid-career

Last years of career

Constance and DJ help us learn to create online social networking.

The conference organizers are smiling! Thanks to them for great planning!
