Sounds good to me! The last well and only NSH meeting that I attended was
an invaluable experience. I have applied much of the knowledge that I learned
here in my daily work. I would be willing to purchase video tapes as well!

I agree, some of us live in remote locations and employers don't mind
spending a little, but airfare can be tough to deal with.

There are many meetings I cannot attend, and I assume the same is true
many of us. I have a suggestion that seems like it could benefit the hosting
societies as well as broadening the spectrum of those who may benefit from
Why not video tape the seminars and workshops. The tapes could then be
to those who could not attend to view at their leisure. The cost of the
could help defray the cost of the seminars or serve as fund raisers for the
I, for one, would love to go to the seminar below, but I am sure I
get to Phoenix any time soon. (I'm in Connecticut) Some people may also be
to convince their employers to loosen the purse strings enough to purchase
tapes for those who they could not send to the seminars. (Can't leave the
empty now can we??...yeah, we've all heard that one!)
I am know watching a videotape is nowhere near the experience of
attending the meetings. So, I cannot imagine the availability of tapes
the attendance in a negative way. This should be profitable to all involved.
