Bound For LCT-NLA Show East In Atlantic City

Ready to head to Atlantic City! For my journey, I'm bringing plenty of hand sanitizer and handi-wipes, and this little Halloween mask just to be scary n' safe.

On Friday, I begin my journey from Southern California to Atlantic City, N.J.. Since my flight leaves LAX early Saturday morning, I plan to stay overnight at a hotel near the airport. I'm really excited about the Show and heading back to the East Coast.

I still remember my first trip to Atlantic City and arriving at the airport after midnight.  While my wife waited for our luggage, she asked me to go outside and see if there was a car outside waiting for us. As I stepped outside, the breath was sucked right out of me by the cold night air. As a California boy, the temperature of 22 degrees was nothing short of chilling! I located the car, went back inside, and told my wife we would need our jackets out of the suitcase. As luck would have it, our luggage was lost and there would be no jackets that night.

LCT-NLA Show East is such a fabulous trade event because it is much smaller than the International LCT Show, so you really have an opportunity to network with almost everyone. The classes are smaller so there is more time for questions in the classroom and a more personalized experience.

I am presenting at this show and quite excited about that. If you plan to attend and want to learn about how to create your own employee policy manual, come to my session.  I will be bringing some samples of our newly created handbook and hope to help many of you launch yours in the near future.

My biggest fear about this trip is contracting Ebola or some other virus on the airplane, although a more likely scenario is some idiot loudly “joking” about it after sneezing.  Fortunately, our fearless leader, Martin Romjue, has shared the link to a USA Today article explaining aircraft germs, and instructing editorial team members to disinfect tray tables, arm rests, and seat belt latches. It’s also a good idea to avoid touching that seat pocket or pressing the toilet button with our bare finger. Maybe, it’s best to use a Ninja kick maneuver to flush. See you in Atlantic City!
