AKC Legislative Conference January 28 - 29, 2012 Short Report
From the time I arrived at the Embassy Suites, Hanford Hotels in Raleigh, NC, last Friday (1/27). I knew I was at a special place at a special time. I ran up to my room, dropped my bags and headed back down to the informal Cocktails hour(s). No shrinking in the hotel room for me this time! Many will recognize the names. Many will be new to you AND to me, but all were welcoming and enthusiastic about the coming two days.
And I know that I met with and talked with many more than I can remember here!
