Lansdowne Resort 65% full

Just want to shoot a message to everyone that we have the number of rooms already booked as of last week. We are about 65% full at this point. If you plan on coming, book your hotel room before they go out. I'm not holding any extras this year so if you don't get a room you'll have to go to the overflow hotel about 3 miles down.

Saturday Repeats

Attention CFUnited Saturday Attendees

We will be picking the Saturday Topics Mid-June. We will be looking at the most popular sessions once more attendees pick their agenda for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday on the scheduler. This will help us determine the most popular topics to repeat on Saturday.

If you have a suggestion for a must have topic on Saturday as repeat, please email it to liz (at)

We will work with the community to pick those sessions. Thanks!
