CHA Show 2016 – My Journey

CHA Show logoCHA Show 2016 in Anaheim, California was a wonderful experience. I have been a CHA member for 3 years and this is the first time I was able to attend the ‘MegaShow’, so you may have to forgive my ‘honeymoon demeanor’ (at times) but  this was all new to me!

I am aware that most of the time I was ‘bright-eyed and bushy-tailed’, almost childlike you could say. And to that I say, ‘ I was living every moment, taking it ALL in, and I realized that I was happy!’. I extended my stay for a week so I could visit with my friend, Lisa, with whom I attended the Show.

Lisa and I tackled the show together. We arrived at the Hilton late Friday night and ‘did the floor’ together on Saturday. I made notes about the booths I wished to re-visit. Sunday we were on our own to re-visit booths, do Make’nTakes, and attend workshops and meetings. I found this was a great way to do the show with a friend especially when we have different interests. We also shared notes and handouts for all the workshops. This way we were able to cover a lot of ground.
