2:30 p.m. On site and ready to go, but there’s just a few glitches. Like no Internet yet so we are all working off handhelds. Dave Adkins heads the Information Technology crew that is working hard at getting us connected.
NYSUT essentially moves it’s Headquarters operation to the site of the convention each year. It”s a lot of work and so far our space is under a dim tungsten gray. Communications is in Americas Hall II.When you get here come see us!
Conventions do not begin until the first delegates arrive so today is low-key. There’s also a cold rain across New York City.
Conventions are like reunions, weddings and funerals: a great chance to reconnect with people you may not have seen for a year or more.
