|AHA Registration Room at Marriott Wardman|
Then it was off to the "Making History Relevant" session that I blogged about yesterday. I located the Maryland Ballroom on the lobby floor of the Marriott Wardman, but when I arrived I was the only one in the room. That's OK, I was about ten minutes early. I found a nice spot to sit in the back where I could tweet without bothering anyone and then waited for people to show up. No one came. After waiting for about ten minutes I decided to check my program only to realize that the session was scheduled for tomorrow at 12:30. Oh well.
The Marriott lobby is hopping right now. The registration line is moving very quickly (see photo above). It took me five minutes to register.
I had a nice surprise within the first ten minutes of my arrival. As I was making my way from the parking garage to the hotel lobby I ran into my former student Christine Kelly. Christine is working for the AHA this weekend and I know we can expect some informative posts from her in her role as one of our conference correspondents. About five minutes later I ran into another former student, Alex Lovelace. I am so glad to see Messiah History Department graduates--now professionals in the field--finding their way at the AHA.
