Orlando Wrap Up

For those of you who missed TMA's Annual Convention in Orlando last week...you missed a great conference. Not to worry. Most of the panels and speakers will be available on demand through TMAccess, our comprehensive online education resource. Watch for a link on the TMA Web site in the coming days that will let you access the videos.

Over 550 attendees found out that the conference offered much more than great panels. The opening reception was one of the best networking functions I've attended this year. I was able to reconnect with a number of people I haven't seen in a long time. Maintaining relationships will be the key to deal flow in these interesting times.

Many firms had dinners and other events after the opening reception on Wednesday night for targeted networking. Then, on Thursday, TMA hosted a dinner event with humorist Dave Barry who shared with us some hilarious observations on life, our business and using the internet.

Congrats to the TMA staff and volunteers for a job well-done.

Don't forget, TMA's next conference is the Distressed Investing Conference in Las Vegas....January 26-28, 2011 at the Aria Resort. Watch your e-mail for more info.
