Greetings from NFA in Albuquerque, NM!

Hello all!

Day 1 of the annual NFA convention is well under way. I am finding that there are so many interesting events this year, it is very difficult to choose which ones to attend!

HOWEVER...if any current, former, sometimes or wannabe students are at the convention and would like a lesson, consultation, or equipment evaluation, leave me a message at the Hyatt or email me and we'll find some time to get together.

I am at the NFA convention until Monday morning. I hope to visit with many of my cherished colleauges, students and friends!

Best,
Catherine
