Here's the unofficial plug:

Smaller conferences allow you to have more one-on-one time with industry professionals. One of the biggest pluses of the Lone Star Conference in Ruth Kenjura's post-conference wine and chocolate party. Ruth's hotel room becomes a no-pitch zone where guest speakers and attendees can talk industry (and sometimes a little gossip flows) in a comfortable, no-pressure environment.

It's not unusual for folks to join NWHRWA after experiencing the Lone Star. So if you will be in the Houston area in October (or plan to be), please come!
