I'm already signed up and can't wait to go. This will be my first genealogy conference and I'm super excited. There are some incredible speakers lined up for this and the price is very reasonable. Just a note also that the whole first day is geared towards societies but I think even the topics being presented that day can be useful to just about everyone.
