Default SOA Annual Meeting 2017

Who's going to Boston with me? Plenty of fun things to talk about this year.

I really liked the meeting this year - some great networking and sessions. What was the total number of attendees? We're rapidly getting to the point where our convention center options will be limited.

Did not run into Tom - saw him at the networking event but couldn't catch up to him. Tom, you're fast!

Hopefully the others on the list have a few more bathrooms than Hynes does!

I had pretty good success in the ones right where you go back to enter the mall. Between sessions, I could usually have a good long talk with someone while we walked, go to the bathroom, then find someone on the way back in and talk to them.

The good news bad news was that they were pretty generous with the coffee service (although why were the lids on a table 30 feet away?). So that made for some restroom needs.
