There are two late summer events I never miss: MinistryCOM and CEDIA Expo. MinistryCOM is the conference event for church communicators and it is key to the work we do at Fishhook. CEDIA Expo is the tradeshow event for home automation and it is a long time client of my former employer and I play a role in making it happen as a host on the convention TV channel. (here I am interviewing CEDIA's head of PR and Marketing)
I never miss either conference...except this year. They fall on the same days. This year, my work at Expo is funding Fishhook's team traveling to and being a part of MinistryCOM. Attending and supporting MinistryCOM is a big expense in time, travel and preparation. I thank God that my work here pays for our work there. But team and MinistryCOM pals, I miss you.
