Now that ICFA-29 is over and everyone is slowly returning to their base of operations, I thought I’d provide some commentary and/or observations on the entire experience. I begin with a query: how was it? Really! How was it? For those of you who noticed, I didn’t actually make it this year in spite of my best intentions. You see, the week before ICFA I became a father to Declan Kyle John Atticus Murphy. I couldn’t then leave my newborn son and my wife (who was supposed to join me this year) to fend for themselves while I was off in Florida; so, I had to cancel my trip (and the Board has been wonderfully supportive of this decision … my heartfelt thanks!!!). I’ve since heard from a few people that it was a wonderful conference and that it went off without a hitch, but I’d like to hear from you. So, if you wanted to send me your thoughts, commentary, stories, etc. I can then post them to the blog on your behalf. If you’re interested, please e-mail me at GrahamMurphy AT trentu.ca and I’ll start posting content (please be advised that I might edit according to length).
In the meantime, we’ve already started work on ICFA-30, our anniversary conference. So, keep checking www.iafa.org for updates and book early as this one promises to be the conference of all conferences.
Back to Orlando!
