Do you also suggest Dan be cloned?  :)
I working on the premise that other members have expertise on certain subjects they might be willing to share. Also a major mistake I have made in the past is the assumption that if something worked for me it should work for everyone. Things that Dan and other members can get away with because of the strength of their credit file may not be something a n00b can duplicate.

I'm not sure that's what Dan had in mind, but interesting thought, nonetheless.

Definitely agree with the last couple points.

Right now I'm thinking of the last week of June or the first week of July in the NYC area.  I'm not planning on charging anything, though I wouldn't be opposed to a charity making a few bucks in exchange for hosting.
i vote for sunday june 24

IIRC HelpMe would try to come to a seminar maybe he will lead one group.

If the majority of his posts on DDF are any indication, he'll either talk about what he can't tell us, or share things that are long dead.

I would suggest adding the topic "reading between the lines" as it seems it would benefit even the long timers here.

Is there going to be a VIP pre/post session/DO?

Isn't the JCM very expensive to rent space in? Or is Geshem center footing the bill?

There could be.
Still tentative, but the location and cost aren't my decisions.

Geshem Center's? If yes, what are they expecting in return? (just make sure they're upfront with you, so there are no surprises)

Anyone care to volunteer to make a Powerpoint slide with a nice easily readable background with a graphic (airplane, credit card, DD logo, etc) for the presentation?

Would be most appreciative!

Not sure I understand.

You want just the framework? On which you'll put the data/info?
