The industry's premier educational event, Heartland Conference 2006, was a resounding success where VGM welcomed more than 500 VGM Group Members along with more than 200 VGM Vendors.

Heartland Conference 2006 has come to a close and I finally have a moment to reflect on this past week's festivities. From the Hog Roast to the final Bowling Bash, the week was informative, educational and FUN.

It is such a pleasure to put this conference together because of the people it affects. No other group of people is as genuine, pleasant, and appreciative than the members of The VGM Group.

Now its time for me to be appreciative in return:

  • I appreciate all the members coming all the way to Iowa. The flights are long and the airports are small but I hope that you feel it was well worth the trip.
  • I appreciate everyone taking time out of their busy schedules to join us at Heartland for the week. The educational opportunities and one-on-one networking time that Heartland affords only make our industry stronger as we learn together.
  • I appreciate all of the vendors, consultants, speakers and especially our sponsors, all of whom made the conference possible. Without their support this conference would never be possible, their association with Heartland Conference makes us the best value in the industry.
  • And I would like to thank all the VGM employees who took time away from their important and demanding positions to spend time planning, organizing and running our conference.

I hope that each of you had as much fun, learned as much and made as many new friends as I did. I hope to see each of you at Heartland Conference 2007, June 11-14, 2007.
