We’re a little over 60 days out.

This is the draft agenda for Boyd & Beyond 2012. If you are listed as a speaker and cannot, please let us know. If you wanted to speak/were promised a spot and didn’t make the agenda, let us know. We had more speakers than the two days would allow.

This is an all volunteer event. If anyone wants to volunteer to bring coffee and water, let us know. I’ve taken care of it for the last couple of years and we’ve gone through 10 gallons/day. Additionally, we’ve had someone bring bagels in the past.Lunch will be ordered out—last year it was pizza. If you see a problem, let us know. Many thanks!
