My teacher tells me that the ITG has made an effort to not be exclusively an organization for professionals. In the light of this I think it would be awesome if those of us at the conference who are students or even hobbyists (there's a concept) could find a way to connect with each other. I figure by making the suggestion we can make this happen. It's not that I don't want to rub elbows with the terrific pros who will be there, but that I would also like to meet others who are like me in their skill and development. Whadyall think?
