Next week I will be traveling to San Francisco to attend the 2010 annual meeting of the United Methodist Information Technology Association (UMITA). Representatives from the IT staff of many of our Annual Conferences will be meeting for a week to discuss the latest technology trends, share insights and fellowship with each other. Unlike previous years we are coordinating our meeting with the United Methodist Association of Communicators (UMAC). My presentation this year will be on migrating our e-mail infrastructure to Google Apps. Last year I presented on the Google Apps system in general. This year I will be discussing where we are in the overall migration along with lessons learned. I’ll have to keep in mind during my presentation that the room isn’t just full of other IT folks.
The conference this year takes place in San Francisco! I am particularly excited about this trip as it is the second time I have been able to visit the west coast. These opportunities don’t come along very often. I doubt I will have much time for touring the city since our schedule is full of action packed meetings and social events. Since the Giants beat my beloved Braves in the NLDS maybe I’ll be able to catch a baseball game? I wouldn’t mind visiting Alcatraz if time permits. Ah well, meetings come first!
