The 10th Annual Northeast Louisiana Technology Fair!
March 5, 2011
Wow!! What a great day in spite of the weather! We had more attendees than expected and we feel confident in saying they had a worthwhile day of learning new technologies, meeting new friends, and eating yummy food!
Cindy Lane! We will be forever grateful for F11 and Learning Essentials as well as the info on Speed Geeking. You are welcome to come back to visit with us anytime.
And a great big THANK YOU to all of the presenters! The participants truly appreciated the information you shared. The only complaint we heard from them was that they could not attend all of the sessions.
And of course, thank you to all of our sponsors. We could not host the NLTF without your support.
Until next year,
NLTF Planning Committee
Crystal Armstrong, Kathy Blakeney, Frank Bobo, Charlotte Bowen, Karla Bowlin, Kathy Evans, William Fletcher, Margaret Henderson, Thoy Leonard, Jan McGee, Wanda Mitchell, Merrick Morrow, Paula Paul, Debbie Pender, and Sharon Trisler.
