    Jim Woody

    Always enjoyed seeing Jim and Lindy at our National Conventions. Jim was a credit to his chapter and IPMS/USA and an exemplary member. Jim will be sorely missed by those of us privileged to have known him. My sincere Condolences to Lindy and Jim's family.

    2018 Awards Presentation

    These are major national awards. They certainly should be recognized in the awards reporting on the web page to members and chapters missing the convention. This oversight needs correction.

    In Need Of Volunteer Photographers

    Mark, I'm delighted to see the excellent photo postings (Quantity, Coverage and Quality) this early in the Convention. It's a real gift to those of us that didn't make it this year. I would like to see more People (visiting tables, viewing models, visiting each other, etc.) as it makes me feel like I'm there seeing old friends. Enjoyed working with you at previous conventions and feel your being there this year is helping the response significantly. Hope to see you in Nooga' next year. THANK YOU,

    Chapter Meeting Calendar?

    How about a work-around? Something like treating such a chapter's listing as two chapter names - for example : IPMS/SheldonCooper_a and IPMS/Sheldon Cooper_b. Or otherwise "doctoring" their Calendar database selection/sorting IDs. In this case I'd consider "." and ":", less noticeable than "_a" and "_b". just a though Ralph
