2011 Convention Cancelled

Hi everyone,

Well, it's been an interesting couple of months culminating in the decision to cancel this year's Bookmark Collectors Virtual Convention. It wasn't an easy decision, but I believe it was the right one.

There are a couple of reasons behind this decision. First and foremost has been my time and availability. Shortly after the new year, several new projects at work demanded more of my time and a new project at home tied up most of my free time. The convention was getting less and less of the time that it needed.

And the second reason is that we weren't getting the interest in supporting the convention we had in the past. I  don't think there was any less interest in a convention, it's just that there weren't as many offers to make presentations or take on some of the organizing tasks that are necessary. And after (happily!) performing many of the tasks last year, I knew that I wouldn't have the same time this year. I will quickly admit that I need to put a lot more effort into organizing and recruiting both presenters and workers, but once again my time constraints interfered with the effort I know this event requires.

So, going forward... I am not saying this event can't happen and be successful! Quite the contrary, I think we all saw how well it can work based on last years event. I am hopeful that delaying the event a year will give more people a chance to prepare a presentation or participate in planning the next convention. I think the delay can make it a stronger event.

Please feel free to write and let me know your thoughts or you can add a comment at the forums.

And let's look forward to an amazing 2012 Convention!
