    Anyone in here going to be at this year's FDIC? This is a great opportunity to establish contacts and do a little evening "networking." I'll be over there on Friday and staying until Saturday. Look forward to seeing some of you!!

          Hey Kurt, Got the email about the class cancelation in AL. Sure hate that, I was looking forward to it but I do understand why. Going to see if we can get enough to commit to having a class here in our county. If I do we will be giving you a call later on.
          Have a good day.

            I think Sly sent the picture bar pretty high, you might need more than 2 days to top that...

              Kurt, I think I've seen more of you in the past two months than I have some of my extended family. Not a bad thing though

              Brian, I'm not certain I'm even worthy enough to walk in the shadows cast by the one and only SLY...I'll do my best though LoL

                All you can do is try my brother. And I'm not worried about Sly's shadow, I just want to at least be the one holding the camera next time...

                    I'm going to try to make it but not sure I'll make it in time. What time does registration open and is it in Lucas Oil this year or is it still in Convention Center?

                      They have an 0830 classroom session at Lucas Oil and then there is a 1230 "Town Hall AFG Meeting" which I believe is at the convention center.

                            In a nutshell:
                            • Catherine Patterson has been named as the new branch chief for AFG
                            • After 2010, there will no longer be any "10q's". If a reduction is sought, you will receive an email so that you can "push back" if needed
                            • 50% of your score will no be from the computer score combined with the peer panel score for your total score
                            • Start date for 2011 AFG application period will be no sooner than late May but more than likely in June
                            • Application changes will be along the lines of having seperate sections for each of the usual 4 narrative section areas. Same content as before required only how you actually input it online will change. 4K charcaters per section with additional 3K characters available if needed.
                            • You will be able to be given credit this year, in a seperate question, regarding transient or seasonal type population fluctuations ( you had better be able to back up your figures with a reliable source of data used, no guessing)
                            • Ambulances are moving to Priority 1 on scoring matrix regradless of department classification type.


                            Well there you have it folks. One more thing as of April 1, AFG website is changing and will now be listed under FEMA website. A redirect will be in place for awhile till you get the new site bookmarked.

                            Hey it is a great show here this year but, OMG my feet and legs are killing me!I have date with "JD" tonight and a microphone! CYA later!

                              Thought scoring was always 50-50 on computer and peer?

                              Late May/early June? Looks like workshop travel season is extending...maybe I'll make it back to Elite status on Continentel. Or United. Or whoever they are now...
