Mr. Schneider also offered the idea of going to the Triple A Conference in New Orleans the first week of June, as he feels it might be one of the most rewarding conferences. Jen went to one conference yearly. The idea was discussed and felt it was too soon and with the Air show taking place later that month every bit of help around the airport is needed, but feel a conference would definitely be beneficial at a better date, perhaps in the fall.
