I am having a great time at this year’s JCCA conference! Not only am I enjoying the company of my Asheville JCC colleagues, but I’m also getting to know new people from other JCCs. It’s also been very affirming to find out that we are facing similar challenges to other JCCs, and then to hear about all of the different and creative solutions that others have come up with. I’m looking forward to trying some of these ideas out when I get back to Asheville! Last night my colleagues and I went to the basketball party. I was pretty reluctant to go, because I’m not much of a basketball fan. I’m really glad I decided to go because I won a Nook! I am pretty thrilled about that and hope my lucky streak continues – if not the iPad tomorrow, maybe the Powerball? Today I’m having a hard time deciding which sessions to choose – there are some very interesting topics. First I’m headed to lunch with Jeff and Dave – our friends at Accrinet. Tonight it’s comedy – can’t wait!
