Hartman/Hale - Amarillo TX in June

ILCA - San Antonio TX in July

I would like to attend both but with the Hartman/Hale Conference I have airfare + a hotel room and ILCA is close enough for me to drive and stay in my travel trailer, saving a ton of money.

Anyone else trying to figure this out? Registration for both is due NOW.

I just can't make any work this summer, way too far away and DS is still too young to leave behind, bringing him would mean dragging all 5 of us somewhere. I am in rural CO, airfare is $$$. I had been planning to attend a one day conference by Catherine Watson Genna, but then I recently found out that I have to attend a two day WIC conference in that same town a week later, the town is 7 hours away for me. Not sure if I can pull that one off since i do have to drag DS and a sitter along...

I am hopeful for the next ILCA conference though.

ILCA will be in San Diego next year and my plan is to attend that as well.

I feel like I should go to ILCA since it is here. Who knows when it will be in TX again.

San Diego in 2011, hmm, that sounds very appealing! Even if I couldn't leave then 2y DS yet, I would be willing to drag everyone to San Diego. DH has never been and I know he would love it. He goes to TX on business often so there is no way I am going to talk him into going there for a conference of mine. Besides this year I am sitting for the IBCLC exam and I wanted to do that in a state where I know my way around. Maybe next year we shall meet.

Good luck on your exam! I am taking mine next year. I lived in CA for 28 years before moving to TX, so San Diego will be my good luck charm.
