They truncated our conference title. We are not showing the movie "Finding NEMO" but rather hoping to have a lively discussion and to let all the NEM's (non-engineering mentors) know wherethey can go for help and ideas. Pass the word to the NEM's on your team.

Re: **FIRST EMAIL**/Announcing the 2nd Annual FIRST Robotics Conference

So I'm curious, what exactly are the fees being charged going to? I know for a fact that they aren't paying the presenters. I doubt renting the rooms would cost that much (or perhaps it does). The fees just don't seem to be inline with what I would expect.

Matt
Rooms, janitors, venue staff, chairs, microphones, projectors, screens, other misc costs, printed material, tickets, web developers, etc... You name it, we have to pay for it.

Also, the funds will help build up a budget that we could use for continuously increasing the quality of the conferences, and having them occur more frequently at various different locations.

Re: **FIRST EMAIL**/Announcing the 2nd Annual FIRST Robotics Conference

Registration for the conference ends in a little over two weeks (April 14). I urge all teams to look at the schedule and register representatives to attend these sessions. I and a student from RAGE attended last year's Chairman's Award presentation and learned a lot. It's also a great place to network with other teams. The spirit of FIRST doesn't end with the end of the 6-week build cycle; there is a lot to learn at the conference in Atlanta!

I guess I'll have to settle for meeting the other NEM's, then!
Looking forward to meeting all of you. Check out the conference, there are a lot of great workshops being offered.
