Love/Hate Relationship with Professional Conferences

By Terry Calhoun

I’ve turned into something of a homebody in my late 50s. My wife and I are now quite familiar with the buildup of stress I experience every time I am about to travel for business. Often, even at a really great conference, I start thinking about the possibility of taking a standby flight and maybe getting home a day earlier than planned.

But I don’t usually give in to that temptation. The angst I feel prior to leaving is replaced by deep satisfaction once I get home and have had a little time to catalogue the experiences I had and the people I met. At many institutions, the fearsome budget cuts of 2003 are deep enough in the past that permission to travel is easier to obtain. So I urge you to find a conference you might enjoy and go to it!
