ONLINE REGISTRATION CLOSED THURSDAY MAY 5TH 2011 AT 3:30P.M.
The topic for our Spring Meeting is "Positioning: Precisely Wrong?"
You may ask, “What does this mean – precisely wrong?” We all too often trust our positions when they “look” alright, all the parts are there…or are they, and how do you know that you can trust your information, especially if it came from somewhere else? How do you know it was created and stored with the proper parameters and of course, the ever present doubt, “Was it loaded correctly?”
