10.  Networking while waiting in the drink line works really well!  The longer the line, the better the networking!

9.  Riding on the train with a buddy – whether at 6 a.m. or 6 p.m. is much more fun!

8.  Technology is IN!  Faxes are OUT!

7.  Customers love it when they don’t have to lug your catalog home and you simply scan their badge and send the catalog to them later!

6.  Dansko shoes are the very best trade show shoes.  Dansko should become a Midam sponsor for 2011.

5.  Recycling is IN!  Generating waste is OUT!

4.  Members of ILCA who attend MidAm have been known to:  jump up and down on the trade show floor, squeel with excitement, dance, sing karaoke, smile more than other people in the industry, stand on their heads (more than once), shake-shake-shake…shake-shake-shake…

3.  Sustainability is IN!  Questioning the validity of the green movement is OUT!

2.  It is possible to get six green industry professionals in one taxi when you’re on a tight budget!

1.  We belong to the best, the kindest and most resilient industry!  2010 will bring all of us challenges for certain.  Those who were at MidAm are clearly going to make it a GREAT and FRESH year despite these challenges…and we’ll do it together!!!

I’m positive that not one ILCA member has a clue what you mean by headstands and shake-shake-shake!
We doubled our HatM numbers this year. Think we can do it again next year, ladies?

I have been eyeing a pair of Dansko clogs for months now, but have been hesitant to spend the $100.00 for them. Your endorsement may make me change my mind. Is there a specific Dansko shoe you are referring to? I have been wearing a black pair of Timberland (they don’t even make them anymore) clogs for over 10 years. I think I paid a lot for them back then, but have worn them to death! They need to be replaced.
