Throwback Thursday: The Annual Conference, Dallas, 2007

February 13, 2014

Every February I go to a conference. It has an official name, but a number of people call it “Annual” because it happens every year. In my personal opinion it is the best conference in higher ed. I always come back energized and with a lot of new ideas that I try to implement in my work. With the exception of 2009 (hello economy tanking) I have been to this conference every year since 2006. Sadly, because of the crap weather we have right now I may not make it out to sunny San Diego for this one. I’ve already altered part of my hotel reservations and the rest will have to be determined by the weather. Damn winter storm and frozen roads that make it hard to get to the airport. I really want to go to San Diego.

So today’s throwback is to 2007 when the conference was in Dallas. It was the first time I had been to Addison, Texas… which is a northern suburb of Dallas. Apparently, it is a very popular conference area because I have been there at least three times now for other conferences.

My friend Claire and I had an evening flight back to our part of the South, so we took some time to explore downtown Dallas and went to the museum at Texas School Book Depository and Dealey Plaza. It is actually one of the most well done museums I have been too… nicely laying out so many facets of the Kennedy assassination and Kennedy’s life. I recommend a stop if you are ever in Dallas.
