Conference Moved to May 16-19th

The best laid plans of mice and men....

Life will do what it tends to do. Which lately seems to be delay what I want most- Online Conference!

So May it must be. May 16-19th! It is a date and not falls down the stairs, dog bites, or crazy folks will keep us from this again!

BBPOC here we come! In May :)

Sorry for any confusion this causes!
