Hi! I'm working on finalizing the speaker/topic list right now. I'm not ready to release it publicly yet. But if you would like to know what's on the schedule right now, just PM me and I'll send you a quick link to session info. (But just know that it is still changing!)

Oh, definitely! There are two scheduled "Fathers Only" sessions. Then, there will be daddy-kiddo gatherings during the other sessions. My husband is the Host Dad for the conference, so he'll make sure everyone knows the important things - like what time the pool is open, where to buy the best pizza, stuff like that!

You can't register yet, but I'll post to this thread as soon as you can!

You CAN and SHOULD reserve your hotel room now. The rates start at $79 a night for our group, but there are only a certain number we've reserved. Here's the hotel link:
and the group code is LLL.

I LUCKILY have a friend that just moved to Coco that beggin us to visit, so I'm sure we'll be hanging out there during the evenings.

This should be pretty cool, a "lazy dad's" way of learning some info rather than hearing it from his (*loving) nagging wife!

I'd like to go. Can you give a website for info on the conference.

Here's the basic info so far:

If you are a current LLL member, you will automatically receive the registration brochure in the mail in mid-July.
I live in Cocoa and have a question. There is a large bf support groups at the local hospital because the closest LLL groups are at least a half hour drive. Were you planning to talk with any of those groups about the meeting happening? I would love to get back involved with LLL, but it is just too much driving with gas prices so high and unreliable transportation. The groups are run by IBCLs and seem very similar to the LLL meetings I went to in LA.
