I’m heading off to Atlanta next week. First, I’m at the IWPA Due Care Week, the four classes on compliance that I strongly recommend each and every one of you to take at some point.
Then it is the IWF, the International Woodworking Fair. I’ll be wandering about Thursday and Friday. For breaks, I’ll be hanging out at Association Row, mostly the IWPA booth and surely making a nuisance of myself, as always. Track me down and say hi—make suggestions for future blog posts!
And do visit your associations while there. It’s important for you to check in on their new resources and also tell them what you need from them. They are scattered throughout the show, but many are in Building C, in what I’ve marked as “Association Row.” Come see us there!
