"By all measures, Conclave 38, this yearís learning conference, was a successful event for those who attended. But, after review, the Conclave board and I have concluded that we have to do moreÖnot only with our convention but with all of our initiatives: our scholarship programs, our ongoing commitment to education, and especially getting financial support from the entire industry."
     He added, "
I may be a dreamer, but Iím not the only one who believes that what we do matters. And so today, Iím reaching out to ask for volunteers who are willing to stand up for the Conclave by volunteering 15-minutes of brain storming power."
