So, I have a question for fellow attendees...

Since so many conference organizers are now going green (like the ABA) and using electronic media for conference materials, how do you handle that? I do not have any kind of portable device like a laptop or iPad that my company provides. I downloaded the ABA's conference app onto my phone, but I really don't want to use my phone for the whole conference because it'll totally kill the battery. I'm bring my Kindle Fire with me for personal use, but really didn't want to use that, so I'm just curious what others do.

I was trying to figure out the same thing, Busy Bee. I like to take notes (handwritten) on presentations, so I might end up printing stuff.

I do have a tablet I could bring, not sure how long the battery will last though... Maybe I'll try it out one day this week. My laptop could prolly make it the whole day if I turn the wirelss off, but then I'm lugging that thing around.

FINALLY ABOVE the gnat line
When I attending the Conference last year, I decided which courses I found most interesting and most necessary. I made myself 1 booklet for each day - printing off materials for each class. I put in a report folder for each day and took that with me. Yes, there were some presentations I didn't have, but mostly I had everything I needed.

There will be printing kiosks on site as well in case you missed printing one that you really want and prefer to have it while in session. I printed some prior to going and had downloaded some on my Blackberry Tablet so they were handy if I decided to attend that session instead.

I am planning on printing what I can ahead of time because I like to take notes as well on presentation slides. I will also download the ap on my phone.

Maybe I'll do a mixture, print presentations for my 'first choice' sessions, then bring the tablet in case I end up at a different session.

You should expect the hosts to provide DVDs of all the materials or at least post them to their website immediately following the conference. That seems to be standard procedure these days.

The conference I was at a few weeks ago gave out iPads that were pre-loaded with specialized apps. I thought it was very convenient for tracking session schedules, viewing demos, communicating with other attendees, etc. ... but I still preferred to take notes with pen & paper.

I will probably bring the bank's iPad. I do like to make notes too so I might break down and make paper copies of the sessions I'm really looking forward to.

I don't know about other devices, but here are some iPad Apps you might want to consider for note taking:

For just quickly typing onto a blank page and you don't care about formatting, I really like iA Writer (I think it costs $1.99.)

If you want to annotate PDF documents, take a look at Adobe Reader (Free); Documents (also free, I think); or PFpen (not free).

I don't like using a stylus with the iPad, but if that's your desire, take a look at Bamboo Paper, Notes Plus or TopNotes.

Oh and FYI for those traveling into Chicago on Saturday, the following teams all have home games that day:

Cubs @ 3:05 PM (Wrigley)
White Sox @ 3:10PM (US Cellular)
Blackhawks @ 7:00PM (United Center)

Please plan your travel accordingly, as traffic near these locations gets all kinds of wacky around game time. smile

I won't be there, but Dani has promised to provide summaries of all pertinent training, despite the fact that perhaps she won't be there either. smile

Who has downloaded the app? You can have 'friends' on it to share your schedule or exchange messages. Pretty cool app.

I have it downloaded, just haven't futzed with it yet.

Cool sounding feature though! Do you have the 'friends' through the app, or through another social media platform that syncs into it?
