AMG 2009--Boston, Ma -- August 5 - 12, 2009
« on: October 22, 2008, 09:21:57 PM »
PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS THREAD TO ASK QUESTIONS, MAKE SUGGESTIONS, OR COMMENTS--please start new threads for those purposes. The reason being, this thread could get so long that members with dial-up would never be able to open it.

Welcome everyone to the unofficially official information post for AMG 2009. There will of course be many threads and many discussions as the events for Boston begin to be planned. This post will be edited and updated as those plans become finalized and you all let us know what you want. This means members will not have to search multiple threads and posts to figure out what is going on. You will want to check this post often as the event draws near and more plans are finalized. If you are visiting this forum for the first time, we strongly encourage you to check out all the threads. There have been several previous gatherings, one in Toronto, Nashville, New York, Atlanta, San Francisco, and Mexico City. Each and every person who attended will attest to how much fun, how enriching, and how truly wonderful they have been. So, if you are considering joining us in Boston, don't be shy--you'll have the time of your life!
